PSYU 320 Final Project
1. Select an individual from adolescence to old age. Interview this person for at least an hour regarding
major events in his/her life, problems, concerns and achievements. Identify family structure, socioeconomic
status and cultural factors. Use your interview to support your discussion later in your paper.
2. Identify and explain a biosocial issue (drug abuse, health concerns, etc.)
3. Identify and explain moral development and cognitive issues.
4. Identify and describe the developmental stage the individual is in. Use 2 theorists to compare and
contrast the issues in this stage. Use at least 2 outside academic sources to support your discussion.
5. Use your integrated findings to identify any problems in this individual’s development. How does their
environment or other factors influence their development?
6. You may include pictures, work samples, awards etc. to help illustrate how the individual functions in
his/her developmental stage.
