Changes in Adulthood Lifespan perspective is gaining knowledge through the changes that occur during human development. Changes occur because of cultural influences and specific events surrounding change. Understanding lifespan characteristics led to different theories of lifespan development. Heredity works together with the environment to create individual differences in development. Life is constantly changing so understanding aspects of change will gain insight in lifespan perspectives.

Trajectories of Offending and Their Relation to Life Failure in Late Middle Age There is a well known rule of thumb when dealing with society and its problems. It can be worded in several ways but what it all comes down to is past behavior often dictates future action. In order to foresee future actions one must study the past and look for patterns. There have been countless studies conducted to observe people who have offended in various stages of their life and how it affects them as they approach middle age. Now, this theory may hold true when talking about society in general or major events, but how strong can it be when talking about an individual person?
Physical and Cognitive Development in Late Adulthood COUNS 502 Dr. Corey Gilbert ABSTRACT The purpose of this paper is to document the physical and cognitive changes that take place in late adulthood.

Aging and Changes in Physical Appearance Barry Gentzel PSY 202 Instructor Newman June 17, 2012 Aging and Changes in Physical Appearance The science of psychology is quite unique, in that it covers so many aspects of the human body and the development covering many stages from birth through one’s entire lifetime until passing. The psychosocial development stage during adolescence is crucial for several reasons, examples of childhood discovery of role identity and personality traits exemplify the broad effects of this stage in future development, as well as peer pressure faced and the response to these, and the physical and cognitive changes involved in the social and physical aspects of late adulthood and the similarities in transition occurring during adolescence and late adulthood. The psychosocial development stage during adolescence is the stage during the course of development when we attempt to develop an understanding of ourselves and others and the world around us, which also includes Erickson’s theory of identity-versus-role-confusion stage where we try to discover our uniqueness, who we believe we are, our strengths, and the roles most suitable for our future—or our identity. (Feldman, 2010) During this stage in my life, I struggled in my search for identity, for there was no proper adult guidance. I was primarily exposed to abuse causing an abundance of confusion.
Ibrayeva Aigerim TFL 1A The key social and cognitive changes during adolescence. Adolescence is a time of many transitions for both teens (adolescent) and their families. To ensure that teens and adults navigate these transitions successfully, it is important for both to understand what is happening to the teen physically, cognitively, and socially; how these transitions affect teens; what adults can do; and what support resources are available. As you read the following information, keep in mind that while all teens develop, they don’t all follow the same timeline. Throughout this stage there appear physical & psychological changes in adolescent.
Children’s development is shaped by both what they are born with, personal (health, learning difficulties or disability) and external (what experiences they have, environment, home life etc). The main factor is learning disabilities or health problems. If a child has a common learning disability, like ADD/ADHD or Autism, then it will always be hard for that child to learn and develop the way they are suppose to. Health problems can slow a child's physical development. Children’s development is mapped out from conception, as their genes develop this will determine everything about them in the future, sometimes through pregnancy if the mother has picked up an illness, is a smoker or addicted to drugs or alcohol these can cause problems with the growth and development of a child.
In adolescence an individual’s priorities change dramatically from childhood; they begin to form their identity and give importance to certain areas of their lives and fade other areas, which can all lead to woe and frustration for a socially dependant individual. Physical appearance is a factor that many adolescents feel is important as well as social status and relationships with family members and peers. There are many scientific and psychological theories advocated by world renowned experts to explain the various stages of development that a person goes through. During the stage of adolescence, physical appearance plays an important role in a person’s life and can determine many aspects of their social and emotional wellbeing which can easily lead to feelings of misery. Society’s beliefs and expectations can be as harmful to a young adolescent as a child being bullied profusely in a playground.
Understanding own Role, Responsibilities & Boundaries of the Role in Relation to Teaching. Its important to note and accept that the styles of teaching and learning are many and diverse. Consequently it is imperative that in my role as a trainer that I realise that what constitutes good teaching and good learning can vary at any given time. Different groups learn in different ways and at different rates dependant on many factors. For example what makes for stimulated learning for an adolescent may not satisfy the needs of an adult learner whose frame of reference has been developed by lifetime experiences.
