Psych - Chapter 1

Final Review

Traditional Approach 1.extensive change from birth to adolescence: 2. little to no change in adulthood 3. decline in old age ... reason why developmental psychology for a long time only dealt with 1-18 year olds
Life-span Approach emphasizes developmental change throughout childhood and adulthood -- begins at conception and continues throughout the human life span
Lifespan Perspective Development is ... 1) lifelong 2) multidimensional and multidirectional 3) highly plastic 4) affected by multiple interacting forces (biological, historical, social, cultural)
Continuity vs. Discontinuity Continuity -- gradual, cumulative change; quantitative Discontinuity -- distinct stages; qualitative changes
Age-graded influences events that are related to age and are predictable in when they occur and how long they last Ex: -- entering college around 18 -- getting a driver's license at age 16
History-graded influences explain why people born around the same time, "cohort", tend to be alike in ways that set them apart from people born at other times
Theory of Evolution Charles Darwin -- natural selection and survival of the fittest
