This course describes a number of developmental challenges or tasks in Late Adulthood Check out Erik Eriksons stage theory as one example.
We can all think of people who fall on either end of the “integrity versus despair”
continuum. Some are happy about the life they have lived. Others have
many struggles and regrets.
Reflect on such developmental tasks… looking for examples either with older family and friends, or perhaps looking forward in your own life. Identify the most important developmental task in your opinion and write a reflective paper providing your supportive/reflective explanation why this aspect has such importance.
Feel free to incorporate course content from all chapters of the textbook in this reflection.
