2 Lifespan Perspective
2.1 A pattern of complex developmental change throughout the lifespan from birth to death. It involves the managemenet of pain and loss throughout life, it is multi directional and plastic. It is contextual and needs to be studied by many disciplines to help understand it.
2.2 Self and Identity
2.2.1 Attachment and Relationships Social Context and Socialization An individual changes constantly throughout the lifespan via the experiences they are subject to in their life. This happens within the context of their close relationships, or microsystem, how an individual experiences the complex interactions between their peers, family and school, or mesosytem, and how they experience the world around them, or the macrosystem. An individual learns from being told information that is enforced by rules, from observing what is happening around them and learning with those around them, such as learning how to cook with your parents. This life-complexity teaches an individual how to navigate their environments. Attachment here can be described as being the strong emotional ties an individual has with their primary caregivers and the behavioral system through which a person regulates their emotions and actions via their subjectivity to their attachment and the consequences within an individuals Internal Working Model. Our childhood attachments and experiences shape our lives and have long lasting effects on how we see our selves
2.2.2 The way in which we understand ourself and how we fit into the world. A person will dream of their 'possible selves' and work towards it in their life. An individual can have both a self they fear of becoming as well as a self they ultimately want to be.
