Life-span Development Final Exam Questions The exam will consist of one of the following five questions. On the exam you will be limited to three written pages so make sure to be precise and eliminate unnecessary elaborations. 1.) Describe in detail the history and ideas of attachment theory including changes in the theory and current views. Provide two examples of other relationships that are influenced by early attachment offering examples for each from our readings, class lectures, discussions, and student presentations. 2.) One of the most fundamental questions faced by adolescent developmental researchers is whether the “Storm and Stress” of adolescence is a phenomena experienced only by Western adolescents or is the “Storm and Stress” of adolescence a phenomena experienced by adolescents in all cultures. Please provide three elaborate examples from our readings, class lectures, discussions, and student presentations supporting each side of the argument. (Three examples for universality and three for culture) 3.) Describe Erikson’s stages of psychosocial development. Additionally, when you describe his theory of identity vs. role confusion provide an elaboration on Marcia’s four identity statuses. Finally, provide an example for each of Erikson’s stages of how the theory translates into practical application based on our readings, class lectures, discussions, and student presentations. 4.) During the semester we examined many aspects of an individual’s social network. Please provide a detailed examination of the history of theory and research regarding social relationships including changes that have occurred in recent times. Once you are done with the history of social relations in general, provide a more detailed account of current research on the relationship with mother, father, siblings, romantic partners, friends, and peers. 5.) One of the themes of this semester was the distinction between developmental versus clinical issues through the lifespan. First, explain the distinction then provide three elaborate examples of issues that can be either developmental or clinical from our readings, class lectures, discussions, and student presentations and elaborate on what information would assist in clarifying if the issue was developmental or clinical.
