Imagine two children born in the same town and the same year to families with similar socioeconomic statuses. One child grows up to be assertive and confident, while the other grows up to be timid and shy. The study of the stages of human development can help explain the reasons for these differences and much more. What is human development, exactly? Human development is a branch of psychology with the goal of understanding people — how they develop, grow, and change throughout their lives.
The theory of psychosocial development created by Erik Erikson is one of the best-known personality theories. The theory differs from many others in that it addresses development across the entire lifespan, from birth through death. At each stage, the individual deals with a conflict that serves as a turning point in development. When the conflict is resolved successfully, the person is able to develop the psychosocial quality associated with that particular stage of development. Learn about each psychosocial stage, including the conflict confronted and the major events that occur during each point of development. Trust versus mistrust is the earliest psychosocial stage that occurs during the first year or so of a child's life.

Document and track population-based measures of health and well-being for early and middle childhood populations over time in the United States. There is increasing recognition in policy, research, and clinical practice communities that early and middle childhood provide the physical, cognitive, and social-emotional foundation for lifelong health, learning, and well-being. Early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescence represent the 3 stages of child development. Each stage is organized around the primary tasks of development for that period.

Development of the human body is the process of growth to maturity. The process begins with fertilization , where an egg released from the ovary of a female is penetrated by a sperm cell from a male. The resulting zygote develops through mitosis and cell differentiation , and the resulting embryo then implants in the uterus , where the embryo continues development through a fetal stage until birth. Further growth and development continues after birth, and includes both physical and psychological development, influenced by genetic, hormonal, environmental and other factors. This continues throughout life: through childhood and adolescence into adulthood. Prenatal development starts with fertilization and the formation of the zygote , the first stage in embryonic development which continues in fetal development until birth. Fertilization occurs when the sperm successfully enters the ovum's membrane.

What aspects of ourselves change and develop as we journey through life? We move through significant physical, cognitive, and psychosocial changes throughout our lives—do these changes happen in a systematic way, and to everyone? How much is due to genetics and how much is due to environmental influences and experiences both within our personal control and beyond? Is there just one course of development or are there many different courses of development?
As discussed at the beginning of this chapter, developmental psychologists often divide our development into three areas: physical development, cognitive development, and psychosocial development. We will discuss prenatal, infant, child, adolescent, and adult development. How did you come to be who you are? From beginning as a one-cell structure to your birth, your prenatal development occurred in an orderly and delicate sequence. There are three stages of prenatal development: germinal, embryonic, and fetal.
Developmental psychology is the scientific study of how and why human beings change over the course of their life. Originally concerned with infants and children , the field has expanded to include adolescence , adult development , aging , and the entire lifespan. Developmental psychologists aim to explain how thinking, feeling, and behaviors change throughout life. This field examines change across three major dimensions: physical development , cognitive development , and social emotional development. Developmental psychology examines the influences of nature and nurture on the process of human development, and processes of change in context across time.
Могу я для вас что-нибудь сделать. Клушар задумался, польщенный оказанным вниманием.
Она уже была готова распахнуть дверь, как вдруг до нее донеслись какие-то звуки. Это были голоса. Мужские голоса. Они долетали до нее из вентиляционного люка, расположенного внизу, почти у пола. Сьюзан закрыла дверь и подошла ближе.
Я не могу. - Разумеется, не можете. Его же не существует. - Коммандер, я должна… - попробовала вставить слово Сьюзан. И снова Стратмор нетерпеливым взмахом руки заставил ее замолчать.
Она была убеждена, что должно найтись какое-то другое объяснение. Сбой. Вирус.
