Week 1 Developmental Psychology Notes -­‐ When and how does age matter -­‐ Why do we do what we do and become who we are -­‐ How do we know what we know -­‐ Who’s at risk, and what can go wrong -­‐ Why does it matter, and what can we do about it 40 Developmental Assets: External: SupportBoundaries and Expectations EmpowermentConstructive Use of Time Internal:Positive Identity Social Competencies Commitment to Learning Positive Values Essentials of Life-­‐Span Development Chapter 1 pp. 1-­‐15 “What leads one individual, so full of promise, to commit brutal acts of violence and another to turn poverty and trauma into a rich literacy harvest” The Life Span Perspective development: the pattern of movement/change that begins at conception and continues through the human life spanIn the 20th century alone, life expectancy increased by 30 yearsIt took 5,000 years to extend the human life expectancy from 18-­‐41 years of age Paul Baltes (Life-­‐Span Expert) 1939-­‐2006life-­‐span perspective: lifelong, multidimensional, multidirectional, plastic, multidisciplinary, and contextual, and as a process that involves growth, maintenance, and regulation of loss. Development is constructed through biological, sociocultural, and individual factors working together. multidimensional: consists of biological, cognitive, and socio-­‐emotional dimensions multidirectional: components expanding and shrinking EX. Adolescence-­‐ romantic interests increase, friendships decrease plastic: capacity for change (isn’t enough evidence to prove if we ever lose the capacity to change) multidisciplinary: How do your heredity and health limit your intelligence Do intelligence and social relationships change with age in the same way around the world contextual: setting contexts like individuals change-­‐ individuals are changing in a changing world EX. families, schools, peer groups, churches, cities Normative age-­‐graded influences: similar for individuals in a similar age group EX. puberty and menopause Normative history-­‐graded influences: common to people of a particular generation EX. Baby Boomers all experiencing the Cuban Missile Crisis Non-­‐normative life events: unusual occurrences that have a major impact on the individual’s life EX. death of a parent when young culture: behavior patterns beliefs, and all other products of a particular group of people that are passed on from generation to generation. cross-­‐cultural studies: comparisons of one culture with one or more other cultures. ethnicity: range of characteristics rooted in cultural heritage, including; nationality, race, religion, and language. socioeconomic status (SES): refers to a person’s position within society based on occupational, educational, and economic characteristics. Implies certain inequalities. gender: psychological and sociocultural dimensions of being female or male social policy: national government’s course of action designed to promote the welfare of its citizens The Nature of Development biological processes: changes in a person’s physical natureEX. Genes inherited from parents: development of brain, height and weight gainscognitive processes: changes in an individual’s thinking, intelligence, and language EX. Memorizing a poem, solving a crossword puzzle, imagining what it would be like to be a movie star socioemotional processes: changes in the individual’s relationships with other people, changes in emotions, and personality. EX. Adolescent’s joy at the senior prom, affection of an elderly coupleAll Three processes above are inextricably intertwined. We study the processes separately, but the human being is a integrated individual with a mind and body that was interdependent. prenatal: before birth; during or relating to pregnancy.conception: the action of conceiving a child or of a child being conceived. 8 Periods of Development: 1. Prenatal Period (Conception -­‐ birth)it involves tremendous growth from a single cell to a complete organism 2. Infancy (Birth -­‐ 18-­‐24 months)humans are extremely dependent on adults 3. Early Childhood (24 months -­‐ 6) (preschool years)becoming more self-­‐sufficient, develop school readiness skills (following instructions, identifying letters) 4. Middle & Late Childhood (6 -­‐ 11)children master fundamental skills of reading, writing and arithmetic. Achievement becomes central theme of child’s world 5. Adolescence (11 -­‐ 22) (transition from childhood to early adulthood)puberty, pursuit of independence and identity. Thoughts are more logical, abstract and idealistic. 6. Early 6. Adulthood (22 -­‐ 39)establish personal and economical independence. Finding a good career and potentially spouse. 7. Middle Adulthood (39 -­‐ 60)expanding personal and social involvement and responsibility. Assisting the next generation in becoming competent. 8. Late Adulthood (60 -­‐ death)time of life review. longest period of development young-­‐old: Ages 65-­‐84 oldest-­‐old: 85 + Four Types of Age: 1. Psychological Ageindividual adaptive capacities compared with those of other individuals of the same chronological age. 2. Social Ageconnectedness with others. individuals who have better social relationships with other live longer and happier lives 3. Biological AgeHow healthy you are physical 4. Chronological AgeNumber of years elapsed from birth stability-­‐change issue: debate about the degree to which early traits and characteristics resist through life or changecontinuity-­‐discontinuity issue: debate about the extent to which development involves gradual, cumulative change (continuity) or distinct stages (discontinuity)
