Assignment 2: Emotional and Social Development in Middle Adulthood
Your final product will be a 3- to 5-page Microsoft Word document written in APA format. Utilize at least three scholarly sources.
According to Erickson (1964), the middle adulthood stage is a time of increased generativity—giving back to the community and guiding the younger generation. The negative outcome of this stage is stagnation.
Analyze personal and contextual factors that promote emotional and social development in middle adulthood and explain how adults in this stage demonstrate generativity through work, community service, and their family.
Conversely, discuss how adults with a sense of stagnation may present in a clinical setting.
Discuss how negative parent-child influences are carried forward.
Include a discussion on what mental health clinicians might consider when working with clients in middle adulthood. Recommend treatment goals that synthesize theories and models of individual, cultural, couple, family, and community resilience to address a middle adult client’s system.
Your document should be written in APA format utilizing at least three scholarly sources. Your document should be written in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
