    Practitioners in the helping professions must be open to seeing people from different
    perspectives and must develop compassion for others. An understanding of the different
    stages of human growth and development provides insight into various populations and age
    groups for person-centered care.

    This assignment requires you to articulate the theories for each developmental stage based
    on emotional, cognitive, physical, and spiritual factors. You are required to identify challenges
    associated with the chosen developmental stage and propose applicable solutions to address
    these challenges. You will need to compare and contrast the development stages of the
    mother in the scenario with the other two family members in the scenario who are in different
    stages of development, physically, socio-emotionally, cognitively and morally. This
    assignment helps develop an understanding of the different stages of human growth and
    development. You will gain insight into various populations and age groups for person centered care.

    This assignment requires you to choose one of the family members from the
    scenario provided. You will primarily focus on Marias development in each part
    of your advancing development papers. But you will compare her stages of
    development to that of her other family members. Review Assignment
    Instructions and Assignment Requirements and ask clarifying questions of your
    instructor before attempting this assignment.
