Session 3

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 intergenerational transmission? How do we make decisions about friendships, love interests, and careers? This course explores the psychosocial variables that contribute to selections in, for example, types of relationships, reproductive and psychological health choices, parenting styles, and family structures across the lifespan.
