Adult Development and Aging
In this course, students explore adult development and aging. Students examine the research literature on psychological, social, biological, and teleological aspects of how adults mature; and explore issues such as relationships, professions, death, dying, and thriving in a difficult world. Students compare the psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and existential approaches, including the theories of Freud, Erikson, Kegan, Vygotsky, K bler-Ross, Prochaska, Gilligan, and Goleman. Through reflection, students apply theory to real personal and professional situations.
