Part I – Developmental Stages

For each developmental domain, physical, cognitive, and social, identify two major changes or challenges associated with the following stages: childhood, adolescence, and adulthood.


Part II – Developmental Gaps

Respond to the following in at least 150 words:

Demonstrate the interdependence of all the areas of development (physical, cognitive, and social) by imagining a persons’ behavior with one area missing. Create a scenario with an area of development lacking and describe the possible results. You may focus on a specific age or imagine how a later age would be affected by the lack of an area during an earlier age (e.g., how a lack of cognitive development during infancy would affect the behavior of an adult).

Revised from Learn Psychology, p. 494

Part III – Nature Versus Nurture

Using your own words, write at least 100 words describing the concept of “nature versus nurture”:

Imagine you work for a small clinic that offers counseling. Recently, a large number of people have come in wanting to seek treatment for their depression. In order to address this need, you’ve been asked to create a brochure that explains depression and its treatments. 

Create a minimum of one panel for each of first four topics and two panels for the last topic:

  • Defines “psychological disorders” and “abnormal behavior.”
  • Describes the purpose and scope of the DSM-5
  • Describes the Depressive Disorders category of the DSM-5
  • Describes the symptoms of depression.
  • Explains the three major categories of treatment options (therapy, medication and medical procedures), including pros and cons for each.

Note. You can use the Brochure Builder to create your brochure and save it as a PDF to submit or you can create your own brochure using Microsoft Word or Microsoft Powerpoint. I would recommend using a Microsoft product to create your brochure.  Former students have mentioned that the Brochure Builder is not very user-friendly.  

Please use the course textbook (Chapters 14 and 15) and other course materials as your primary sources of information for this assignment. Be sure to properly cite any resources you use.  You can access the DSM-5 following this path: Library > University Library > Specialized Resources > DSM-5.
