Project #90719 - Report 1

 The objective of the report assignment is to provide brief overviews of various theories and discuss the contributions of their theoretical model to the understandings of developmental process. How these theories are in agreement---points shared, and how they differ, are the areas of the focus of the report assignments.

---The report 1 is assigned to explore  specific theoretical models: Maturational and biological, psychodynomic Models

---The report will discuss the five aspects in each model in the areas which are mentioned below.

Please consult the table 1.3, page17 in your textbook. This table presents the summaries of important areas across the four theoretical perspectives shown in the table: maturational, biological, psychodynamic, behavioral, and cognitive models.

  1. The basic assumptions
  2. The philosophical rationale
  3. The important variables most often studied
  4. The primary method used to study development
  5. The areas of greatest impact

Please Note:

The report should be 2-3 pages with in-text quotes and page references related to the source: the textbook. You are encouraged to use at least on outside source besides the textbook. You may use MLA style, if you may choose, to write your report and utilize the resources available to you in the English Language Workshop for editing your report for an extra 5 points.

Report 1:        

Maturational and biological Models (chapters 3 and 4, Pp. 57-105): The maturational and biological approaches deal with theories that have as their basis the importance of biological processes, examining how these processes contribute to different theories. As an example Arnold Gesell and his maturational model is mentioned in chapter three of the textbook.  Gesell’s theoretical model documenting normal development has contributed a great deal to the understanding of emotional and psychological development (Pp. 57-77). Also, two relatively new and exciting views, as mentioned in chapter four, underline the singularly important role biology plays in the process of development and , hence, in the creation of culture (Pp. 78-105).

Psychodynamic Models (chapters 5 and 6, Pp. 107-155): Psychodynamic approach includes the discussion of the psychosexual model (Freud in chapter 5. PP. 107-136) and the psychosocial model (Erickson, chapter 6, Pp. 139-155) which both models bring new perspectives to the question of human development that of conflict and tension. How conflicts can lead to change and maturity over the course of development. Please click below to see the full description.
