Developmental Regulation across Adulthood: Primary and Secondary Control of Age-Related Challenges.
Heckhausen, Jutta
Developmental Psychology, v33 n1 p176-87 Jan 1997
Explored developmental regulation in adults at different ages. Assessed developmental goals, expectations about goal attainment and control, control strategies, life satisfaction, and age identification. Found that, with increasing age, participants expressed increased focus on age-appropriate goals, stronger tendency for compensatory secondary control, more goals directed at the avoidance of developmental losses, and a greater goal flexibility.
