Example and Hints

DevPsych3k Unit VII, Chapter 20, Assignment 1


No example is given.


Note that this assignment is the same as some earlier assignments and some future assignments.  The only difference is that I want you to select different disorders, and make sure that they are disorders likely to appear in, or become a particular problem during, this age period.

They want you to come back again!  You have been asked to give a brief (about 10 minutes) presentation on a couple of the disorders that might affect the development of middle adults.

Briefly describe the disorder, how common it is, how it can affect the development of the individual in the middle adulthood period, how it can be treated, etc., but remember that your presentation cannot last longer than 10 minutes, so keep it short and to-the-point.

Be sure to select two disorders that are likely to show up during the middle adulthood years not something that is likely to have appeared earlier, nor not likely to appear until later.

Provide a proper reference.
