Aging Biological, Psychosocial, and Developmental Essay

… This perspective is continuous and recognizes the various developments that occur during specific age periods and is utilized in studies in many areas of science such as psychology and anthropology. Another attribute of this perspective is that it is contextual; an individual constantly acts and reacts to situations based on past events, biological makeup, physical environment and social and cultural events (Hernandez, 2008).

Three main developmental domains are recognized in this perspective (Boyd and Bee, 2006). The physical domain encompasses the bodily changes an individual experiences including transformations in height, weight, shape as well as puberty. Also included in this domain are an individual's perception of self and the world. The cognitive domain deals with events such as thinking, the process an individual goes through…. [read more]


Aging and Social Isolation Term Paper

… Gerontology

Aging and Social Isolation

This article relates to gerontology because it discusses two studies of aging men (58 black men aged 65 to 96), and discusses whether they are isolated from their family or not. It relates to aging because it involves studying the aged and how family structure changes as people age. This study involves statistics, gerontology, and sociology, and used demographics as the basis for the questions and results of the study. The article is from a respected journal on aging, and so, the credibility of the article is not in question. This study indicates that family relationships are an important issue as a person ages, and that most black men enjoy close familial relationships. Thus, this is not only an aging…. [read more]


Impact of Modern Technologies on Human Development Term Paper

… Psychosocial Impact of Modern Technologies on Human Development

What is psychosocial development?

The discussion of psychological impacts of modern technology is to be based on the theories of psychosocial development. This compels us to first briefly discuss what psychosocial development is before we get into modern technology. The entire subject was developed by Erik Erikson, who lived during the period of 1902 to 1994. He is probably the first individual to have raised the question of psychosocial development. The theories were developed by him based on his own personal life and the lives of Oglala Lakota Tribes in America. Thus it is clear that the development of the theory is not based on any direct modern experiences, and certainly not on Internet. According to him…. [read more]

Neuroscience and Human Development Research Paper

… In contrast, motor neurons transmit action potentials from the central nervous system toward the periphery (Seeley et al., 2005).

Neurons and their Electrical Activity

The nervous system is composed of millions of nerve cells called neurons. Neurons are the parenchyma of the nervous system which performs every function of the nervous system from simple sensory functions to complex thinking and analysis. Neurons, upon receipt of stimuli, transmit responsive signals to other neurons or to effector organs. Clark (2005) observes that the anatomy of a neuron is composed of four main parts; the cell body, the dendrites, the axon, and the nerve fibers. Given the importance of each of the neuron components, it is important to discuss how each work separately and in tandem to achieve…. [read more]


Parenting Style & Jewish Youth Alcohol Use Thesis

Parenting Style Influence on Excess Alcohol Intake Among Jewish Youth


The harmful effects of alcohol abuse by adolescents are well documented, and these effects can have lifelong implications. Some of the more challenging aspects of addressing this problem include differing cultural and religious views about alcohol use. In addition, different types of parenting styles within these different settings can also have a profound effect on adolescent alcohol use and abuse. To help fill a gap in this body of knowledge, the purpose of this quantitative survey research was to examine the relationship between different parenting styles and alcohol consumption among Jewish college students in the United States because previous studies have not focused specifically on cultural context when studying the relationships between parenting styles and….

Elder Abuse Phenomenon Correlating Relationship to Elder Mortality Term Paper

… Elder Abuse Phenomenon Correlating Relationship to Elder Mortality

Elder abuse has received increased scrutiny from the law enforcement and healthcare community in recent years. This increased attention is due in part to the increasing number of elderly in the United States and the passage of various laws designed to improve the reporting of such episodes of abuse as well as the prosecution of those who abuse the elderly. Unfortunately, elder abuse is particularly difficult to detect in some cases and studies have shown time and again that many elderly people are highly reluctant to admit to such abuse for fear of reprisals from the abuser or the possibility of being institutionalized if existing domestic living arrangements are disrupted. The purpose of this study was to…. [read more]


Principles of Social Systems Thesis

… ¶ … Social Systems

This work will develop perspectives and comprehension and understanding of how changes in the family system interact among part of the social system and will analyze, synthesize and compare and contrast information from classical literature related to the family as a system. The work of Fontaine (2005) states that there is a "growing tend in psychological science to conceptualize individual development according to a 'systems perspective'. This perspective advocates analysis across qualitatively distinct levels of functioning that are interrelated within the system of interest (e.g., individual development)." (Fontaine, 2005)

Religiosity Impact on Adolescent Alcohol Use Thesis

… Adolescent Use of Alcohol



Alcohol use among adolescents is acknowledged as a significant family and societal problem (Yang, Zhiyong, & Schaninger, 2010). Professionals in multiple healthcare fields have warned that adolescent alcohol use can lead to (a) detrimental drinking patterns, (b) negative influences on families, and (d) significant costs to society (Yang et al., 2010). The costs of adolescent alcohol to society are truly enormous and have been estimated at $68 billion annually (National study reveals teen substance use America's no. 1 public health problem, 2011). These economic costs, of course, are in addition to the tragic toll that adolescent alcohol use can exact, a toll that can last a lifetime. In fact, adolescents who drink are more likely to drink excessively…. [read more]

Pogson and Tennant Thesis

… Pogson and Tennant

Which do you think most closely explains "you" as an adult learner?

I do not actually fit into any one of the specific theories that Pogson and Tennant have offered. The theory regarding practical intelligence is an interesting one, but yet I have many of the traits of this type of learner without being illiterate, as many of these learners are. The IQ model is probably the closest model to me as an adult learner. Since my IQ is above average, I feel that my intelligence is what best helps me learn. I do have difficulties with some areas of learning, but that is to be expected. Almost everyone has difficulties with something in their learning experience. Some people struggle with math,….
