Personal Development Reflection

Write a four-page paper reflecting on your psychosocial, cognitive and spiritual development during your undergraduate college/university years and the factors that have impacted or are influencing your development during this time, including the following elements:

1.    An application of existing theories to your own development. Discuss the degree to which your experiences match the explanations proposed by relevant developmental theories by identifying parallels you notice between your experience and existing theories and why you believe these exist or not.
2.    Describe the college experiences that most facilitated your development in the psychosocial, cognitive, or spiritual areas of your life, integrating these insights with relevant theory(ies).
3.    Reflect on the positive and negative impacts of the college years on your own development.
