SPCL 7804 Human Development: Session 14: Unit 5 – Emerging & Early Adulthood, continued

Open Educational Resource (OER) created for Professor Elizalde-Utnick's SPCL 7804 course.


What are your adult relationships and attachments like? How does the reading apply to you personally?

Application Activity: Exploring Your Childhood and Adult Attachments

  1. What attachment category do you think you fell into as a child?
  2. Securely attached?
    Anxiously attached?
    Avoidantly attached?
  3. How are your adult attachments? Are they similar to your childhood attachments?


In this session we focus on psychosocial development in adulthood. Based on earlier discussions of attachment, we explore adult relationships and attachments, and consider their relationship with earlier attachments. We also look at adult lifestyles and parenting.  We will begin with a quiz on the assigned readings and then discuss the material and engage in application activities.
