From a lifespan approach, we consider what influences an individual’s life choices and explore what remains consistent and what changes. How are we shaped by inter-generational transmission? How do we make decisions about friendships, love interests, and careers? This course explores the psycho-social variables that contribute to selections in, for example, types of relationships, reproductive and psychological health choices, parenting styles, and family structures across the lifespan.
