Young adulthood | Psychology homework help

 

High school graduation, college admissions, and moving away from home. These are among the stepping-stones that mark the transition from adolescence to adulthood. For some people, this transition can be an awkward one. During this transition, they may find themselves wanting freedom to pursue academic and career interests outside of the home, while at the same time continuing to rely on parents or caregivers for financial and emotional support. During this time, some parents might project their own hopes and dreams onto their children, coming to believe that they aren’t living up to family expectations. Likewise, a young adult might be ready to leave the family and become independent but may be incapable of doing so due to internal anxieties and fear of the unknown.

As a counselor, how might you support both a young adult and his or her parents/caregivers during this fragile time?

For this Discussion, review this week’s media, “Young Adulthood,” focusing on the presenting issues of the highlighted family member, aged 19–29. Keeping these issues in mind, select one of the following theoretical models to use as a lens for your Discussion post:

  • Schaie’s Theory
  • Perry’s Theory of Intellectual and Ethical Development
  • Kitchner’s Model of the Development of Reflective Judgment
  • Holland’s Theory of Personality-Environment Types
  • Super’s Developmental Approach

Note: Identify the last name of your assigned client family in the title of your post.

Post by Day 4 a description of the client’s developmental level. Explain how you might develop rapport with the client and promote engagement in the counseling process. Briefly describe the counseling approach you might use with this client, based on the theoretical model you have selected. Justify your response with references to this week’s Learning Resources and the current literature. Be specific.
