GPSA504 Human development: Adulthood–Middle to Later Years

 

This course will focus on the intra-psychic, developmental, and biopsychosocial processes that occur during middle to later years with emphasis on some of the relevant life occurring challenges. Students will read and study developmental theory and case presentations of people and individuals in this phase. The objective of this course is for students to further their understanding of some of the conflicts and recapitulations of earlier conflicts in the life cycle that occur during this phase and how they cope. Also to be studied are unconscious motivations in particular individuals, how people grapple with these aspects of their personalities, and manage this phase of development. The role of mental health, neurological, biological, environmental and cultural factors will be explored in the context of later life. (3-cr)
