This week you get to have a bit of fun by taking 2 assessments as we study emotional development and attachment and personality. You will study what biological foundations (nervous system) are involved in emotion, various views (Functionalist) of emotion and how emotion(s) may be regulated. You will consider this through the three lifespan changes of childhood, adolescence and adulthood. The quality of attachment formed in childhood significantly impacts the natural attachment one forms later in life whether it is romantic or job related. In chapter 11 you delve into how the self, identity and personality are formed. Trait theory (Big Five) is introduced to help us understand personality and underlying characteristics. This is the foundation for the assessment you will be taking. Please note how self-esteem and self-concept develop and ways we may increase/improve them.
