COUN 517 Lifespan Development Module #7.1 Required Readings Chapter 11 – Physical and Cognitive Development in Young Adulthood All chapters are from the required text unless otherwise noted: Broderick, P. C. & Blewitt, P. (2019). The life span: Human development for helping professionals (5th ed.). Upper Saddle River, NJ: Pearson Education. Chapter 11 – Physical and Cognitive Development in Young Adulthood Determining when an individual reaches adulthood is difficult because adulthood is a largely social and cultural construction. Marker events, such as getting married or entering the workforce may serve as a guide, but this has changed over recent years. Most young adults consider being self-responsible and making independent decisions as the most important qualities of being an adult. The period between ages 18-25 has been described as emerging adulthood. Physical development: Between 18 and 30 years of age, biological systems reach their peak potential. Males and females peak at different times and lifestyle (diet, exercise, sleep, stress management) affects this peak period and achievement. During young adulthood, the frontal lobe continues to mature and pruning of synapses continue, and if done in healthy ways, these changes improve the ability to self-regulate, plan, and engage.
Cognitive development Young adulthood is a time of extensive learning. Some start college, others begin careers, and all the while cognitive development is taking place. There are different theories on cognitive development during this time, and those theories will be explored in this lecture and in your text. Piaget-AccordingtoPiaget,cognitivedevelopmentendswith formal operational thought, which we explored in Chapter 9. Some researchers, who have carried on Piagets work, believe there may be a fifth stage – Postformal Thought, which considers factors such as adult stressors and relativistic thinking. Perry-describesastagemodelofintellectualandethical development that occurs during the college years. A person moves from dualistic thinking (there is only one answer and all others are wrong) to relativistic thinking (there is more than one correct way to view the same issue). Kitchener-proposedaseven-stagetheoryofreflectivejudgment. Reflective judgment is how people analyze elements of a problem and justify their problem solving. People move from believing in certainties to basing their judgments on a set of rules/ logic in combination with personal reflection. The chart below shows the stages of Kitcheners theory. : Decision Making An essential developmental task during early adulthood is developing decision-making skills. While the foundation for this can be laid during childhood and adolescence, adulthood is where we see these skills really mature and solidify. Models of decision making include key steps: (1) defining the problem, (2) setting realistic goals, (3) developing a variety of solutions, (4) assessing the costs and benefits of each alternative solution, (5) selecting and implementing one alternative, and (6) reviewing the effectiveness of the solution after implementation.
Once I get chapter 13 and 14 I will send it to you.
