CASE STUDY relevant to Australian or well known; book, television program or film.
The purpose of this case study is to integrate the understanding of two developmental theories with a practical example. Within this integration is an identification, analysis and evaluation of major life themes with the inclusion of strengths and challenges faced by a fictional character.
Select a character presented in a book, television or film at a major life transition (leaving home, wedding, parenthood, retirement) and briefly summarise the context in which the character becomes known.
Write a case study that summarises the major life themes identified in the book, television or film, and apply theories of development to analyse the life stage, the strengths and challenges faced by the character, using two developmental theories presented in this unit (Jean Piaget, Ivan Pavlov, John B. Watson, Burrhus Frederic Skinner, Albert Bandura, Lev Vygotsky, Urie Bronfenbrenner, Gilbert Gottlieb, John Bowlby, Mary D. Salter Ainsworth, Lawrence Kohlberg, James Marcia, Dexter Dunphy, Kim Bartholomew, Antonia Henderson, Donald Dutton, Robert Sternberg, Howard Gardner, Betty Carter, Monica McGoldrick, Sandra Bem, Leslie Gutman, Colin Murray Parke). Draw on a range of unit and other relevant references.
Your Case Study will need to address: ? -Case study written and is inclusive of the naming of major life themes in the chosen source ?
-Identification of the chosen character with a brief summary of the context in which the character is introduced ?
-Identification of key aspects of each of the two major developmental theories and application of these theories to an analysis of the life stages of the character, including the strengths and challenges faced by the character ?
-Reference to current literature and integration of relevant theory into your discussion
a) discuss supports and challenges to health and wellbeing at various stages of the life span
b) discuss the psychological implications of physical and cognitive changes that occur with maturation and ageing
c) identify and critically evaluate attachment and socio-emotional theories of development and apply to case presentations
e) apply developmental theories to a range of situations and contexts?
