Week 5: Stress and Health
Stress is an issue that most people can identify with, either now and again or every minute of the day. The effects of stress are a field of interest and research for many, and the connections between past experiences and future health is one major focus area of research. The effects of stress can be greater than some individuals realize, including how stress works against us and the potential for healthy aging. In fact, how people deal with events can have a major impact on both their physical and psychological health.
Erik Erikson’s theory of psychosocial development is a cornerstone of lifespan development theories. This theory can provide essential insight for both psychologists and individuals in that it covers the entire lifespan instead of just one stage. Furthermore, the different challenges or crises of Erikson’s eight stages represent multiple opportunities for social and cultural growth.
This week, you will examine the connections between stress and health through childhood experience and adult wellbeing.
