Perhaps most profound of all are the interactions among family members. Physically, emotionally and cognitively, the importance of family in human development is intrinsic to individual identity and self-concept throughout all stages of life. Virtually everyone who sees a newborn notes the similarities of physical traits shared by the baby and its parents. Based in large part on heredity, the timetable for physical development has an impact on the rate and extent of growth, the age at which developmental milestones are achieved such as talking, walking, etc. Clearly, the effect of family on physical aspects of human development is quite significant. Likewise, emotional development is bolstered or impeded, as the case may be, by family.
Human growth and development requires a lot of things to happen. In many cases, various issues that a child undergoes when born affect the growth and development of the child. The factors that affect human growth and development can be either natural or human inflicted depending on the cause of that situation. There are various theories that have been put forward in order to help people understand the life cycle development and the human behavior. These theories that have been selected for this case study are:.
In the first Human Development Report introduced a new approach for advancing human wellbeing. Human development — or the human development approach - is about expanding the richness of human life, rather than simply the richness of the economy in which human beings live. It is an approach that is focused on people and their opportunities and choices. People: human development focuses on improving the lives people lead rather than assuming that economic growth will lead, automatically, to greater wellbeing for all.
Throughout the years of studying human development, there have been theories about the psychological stages or phases of development. In order to better explain and discuss the Erikson stages of development, I will be referring to my own life and phases of development through the Erikson Neo-Freudian Psychoanalytic Theory. The stage of trust versus mistrust occurs during infancy, from birth to around one and a half years old. To resolve these feelings of uncertainty the infant looks towards their primary caregiver for stability and consistency of care. It took me six months to gain that weight, so in that time period I was always with family.
