The Challenges of Adulthood
The crises of adulthood (as identified by Erikson) cause people to question the decisions they've made and the impact they have on the world.
Physical Development in Adulthood
As individuals age and move through early, middle, and later adulthood, a variety of physical changes take place within the body.
Cognitive Development in Adulthood
Cognition changes over a person's lifespan, peaking at around age 35 and slowly declining until late adulthood.
Socioemotional Development in Adulthood
The aging process throughout adulthood includes biological, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual changes.
Relationships and Families in Adulthood
An interpersonal relationship is a strong, deep, or close association between people that may range in duration from brief to enduring.
