PSY 357 Week 7 Assignment: Development During Middle Age; Interview Essay

Middle and Late Adulthood


Using the theories of Erikson, Vaillant, and
Levinson, create a set of 15 questions related to the socioemotional, physical,
and cognitive development of middle-aged people.


Submit the 15 interview questions only for
preapproval to the instructor by the end of Day 2 of Module 7.


Using your questions, interview two middle-aged
people (they may be your parents, relatives, or friends). Note: American
Psychological Association (APA) ethical guidelines indicate that interviewees
have the right to refuse to answer any question posed to them by an
interviewer. Please ensure that your interviewees are aware of this and do not
force an answer where the opportunity to reply has been refused.


From your interviews, write an essay of 1,000-1,500
words in which you relate your findings. Where are your interviewees in
relation to the development stages of Erikson, Vaillant, Levinson, and Peck?
Explain your rationale for placing the interviewees as you did.
