Chapter 11 of the course textbook covers cultural, cognitive, personality, and identity issues of the developmental stage of emerging adulthood, as does this week’s required article by Smith-Osborne (2007), which presents a historical perspective on two developmental theories, with a focus on resiliency theory.
In your initial post to this discussion, address each of the following items:
Identify and cite two peer-reviewed articles that analyze similar issues or cases relating to emerging adulthood from the perspectives of lifespan theory and resiliency theory, respectively.
Briefly summarize the theses, methods, and results of each study, identifying the similarities and difference between the two approaches.
Assess the relative strength and shortcomings of the resiliency theory approach vis a vis a lifespan theory approach with reference to specific cases or examples.
Reflect on what the two studies reveal about the cognitive and personality issues of emerging adulthood discussed in your articles.
When you cite and reference, make sure you briefly cite and reference current scholarly sources. For instance, make sure you briefly cite in the body of the writing what you took from the Mossler and Ziegler (2016) text and also reference the course text. You can use other current credible scholarly sources no more than 7 years old if you like.
