I’m working on a psychology writing question and need an explanation to help me study.
Socio-Emotional Developmental Advice Needed
Utilize the major developmental theories you have become familiar with from readings and content from Lesson 6. Pretend you are the author of a “Ask a Student” column for a blog on developmental concerns. You can play the expert and give advice grounded in the theory and research from Lesson 6.
Choose 5 of the prompts below and write a paragraph or two answering each one. Explain in your answers why this is likely happening and how to best deal with each of the questions/concerns below. Remember, since this is for course credit, using (and citing) information from the textbook chapter and other Lesson 6 readings provided here is necessary. In this assignment you will demonstrate your mastery of course materials and provide depth of scholarship.
A recommendation: don’t pick an explanation that requires your adding a lot of information about the individual’s behavior that isn’t included here. What you are given below is enough to use the various information and stages in Lesson 6 to answer the question without having to add lots of details that aren’t given.
