Secondly, Aquinas concludes that common sense observation tells us that no object can create itself. In other words, some previous object creates it, but there cannot be an endless string of objects causing other objects to exist. Aquinas believes that ultimately there must have been an uncaused first cause that begins the chain of existence for all things. I quite assent to the idea that there must have a first unmoved mover to put the universe into motion. As we all know, everything has a beginning and an end, so as to the universe.
(P3) 2. Explain the potential differences in the care needs of individuals at different life stages (P4). [pic] Task 3 1.

Case Study: Susan Boyle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_boyle) Explain how winning on the X-Factor has affected the self-concept of Susan Boyle.
This idea links to predestination in the fact that it believes everything in the universe- even human action- has a cause which precedes it. This is based upon science, as if it wasn’t case that one event or set of circumstances lead to another, scientific observations and conclusions drawn from that, then it would be both meaningless and pointless.
Both Piaget and Freud looked at development over a life span in stages. In addition to these theories there has been a debate of "Nature vs. Nurture" that raises questions of what has more influence in development; A person's nature and innate qualities or the external experiences they experience? Looking at development through the lens of an entire lifespan has been something explored for quite a long time. Ancient societies had various viewpoints of an individual's development believing in things like destiny and definite role in life in which a person would develop (Guest,2011), but over time through the simplest method of human observation there was noticed of changes affected by experience that created a debate "between an assumption that people have inherent developmental destiny, and the knowledge that what happens to people in the social world can alter that destiny". Looking at development through lifespan can help us as individuals through the rest of our years as well as help shape future generations by identify key segments during their own development over time.
Assignment brief – Unit 4 Development through the life stages | Qualification | BTEC National Health & Social Care Level 3 | Unit number and title | Unit 4- Development through the life stages | Start date | Jan 2014 | Deadline | June 2014 | Assessor name | ekitonga | | Assignment title | Development through the life stages | The purpose of this assignment is to: This unit is about understanding the way we change over time. It explores the course of human development and the range of genetic, biological and social factors that influence how life turns out. You will investigate the major events which affect people throughout their lifetimes and look at the effects of ageing, and theories about it. | ScenarioImagine you are a trainee investigation reporter for ‘Health Promotion’ magazine and you have been asked to discover as much as possible about a famous person in order to describe the life stages of their life so far and what might happen in their future. You will write about effects on their life at two different life stages (obviously choose a person 18+).

Developmental Timeline Developmental Timeline Deny Crowder Grand Canyon University Module 1 September 20, 2009 This timeline will show the works of Lawrence Kohlberg , Jean Piaget’s, and Erikson’s theories on different developments from birth to adulthood. They have their degrees and the right time of studies to show what comes first and what comes last in these developments. Example of the different behavioral problems are:( ADHD ) Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder that is a chemical imbalance in the brain. Heredity and environment through ones genes they could inherit like eyes, height, etc. The environment that the child lives in and or around.
COPYRIGHT MICHAEL P M MHLANGA THE NATURE NURTURE DEBATE AND ITS IMPLICATIONS ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF INDIVIDUALS. MICHAEL P M MHLANGA GREAT ZIMBABWE UNIVERSITY The concepts of nature and nurture shape the development of human beings. This write up sets out to assess the nature nurture debate, pinpointing the effects each has on the development of children. Terms that will be defined are nature nurture debate, nature and nurture. Feldman (2009) defines the nature nurture debate as the issue of the degree to which environment and hereditary factors influence the behaviour.
emotions, personality and different roles played in society (Sigelman and Shaffer, 1994b). The main area of development this essay is going to discuss is cognitive development, as in the ‘changes in the mental processes.’ (Sigelman and Shaffer, 1994c). Life course theories began to emerge in the late fifties till the early seventies. It came about with the introduction of new methods to use in empirical research. Through the use longitudinal studies it was possible to gain information about lifespan development as individuals, or groups were studied at different times throughout their
Which is more important in the formation of a person’s character; genes or environment? Explain your reasoning In this essay, I give a summarised short overview of the important genetic and environmental influences which affect the contributions to the personal development that contributes to personality continuity and change, but genetic factors will affect rank order change only in younger decades of life, whereas environmental influences appear to represent a lifelong source of inter-individuality differences in personal development. Christian Kandler (2012) says, “Personal development is a lifelong process. Theories suggest that personality continuity and change may result from environmentally mediated processes of identity development due to age-graded social roles and individual life experiences, but also from biological maturation. Genetically informative longitudinal studies across different age cohorts allow a differentiated picture of genetic and environmental sources.” Furthermore, peer pressure is another environmental aspect which influences or contributes to personal development.
