Yapundich, Eleanor F.; And Others
Text, illustrations, and exercises are utilized in these four learning modules to instruct health sciences students and other interested persons in the various stages of human development. The first module, designed by Eleanor Yapundich for associate degree nursing students learning about growth and development, examines the fundamental biological, psychological, and social characteristics of various stages in the human life cycle. It also introduces students to the development theories of Erickson and Freud. The second module, by Antoinette Lenahan, is designed for parents, as well as for students in nursing, child care, and social work. This module examines the interrelation of physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development in children. The third module, designed by Rochelle Stein for the general public, looks at the physiological changes that accompany old age. The fourth module, written by Nadine Eisen for persons facing their death or a death in their family, explains normal psychological responses to one's death and discusses means of coping with these responses. Each of the modules delineates learning objectives, presents information and illustrations, provides reinforcement exercises with immediate feedback, and concludes with a post-test and accompanying answer key. The amount of time required to complete the modules varies with each, ranging from 20 to 30 minutes. (JP)
