More on the Presentation

Human development occurs at an amazing rate, often without effort, formal instruction, or guidance. It also begins at conception and continues throughout the entire lifespan. “Who You Have Been and Who You will Be” weaves together Jean Piaget’s and Erik Erikson’s theories in order to highlight the milestones that are typically accomplished during each developmental stage.  The goals are to help you discover what it means to develop, the many ways you have already changed, and the future achievements you can expect.
