Session 9: Stories that Stick-Learning Lifespan Development by Watching Real Kids Grow Up
Dr. Fox will review basic theories of normal lifespan development, illustrating these concepts with short video clips of her own son and daughter growing up, as well as her father as he reaches the end of his life. The video clips will bring the concepts to life, and are intended to stimulate discussion and promote active learning. Emphasis will be placed on useful wisdom that can be gleaned from these theories, to inform our efforts at parenting and raising happy, well-adjusted, and successful children. Initially, we will review major developmental theories to provide broad concepts. We’ll discuss challenges of old age, end of life issues, and losing a loved one. Next, we will switch to a chronological approach, integrating the theories into each age and phase.
