Lifelong development psychology

In the past, most of the psychology under the name of development was actually limited to the research of the developmental stage of children. It was extremely exceptional for the development of adults and the elderly. Only gradually began to pay attention to the research of the elderly.

  Researchers who hold the perspective of life-long development psychology believe that human being is always a progressive development process from death to death.

Human life is a continuous process. Each stage of life is affected by the previous period, and it also affects the later development stages.

  Life-long development focuses on studying the whole development process of human beings, and studying all behavioral changes from prenatal to death.

Lifelong developmental psychologists believe that human development and aging are not only a physiological process, but also the result of social and environmental effects.

Human physiological development cannot be separated from the social environment of certain times.

  People of different ages live in different environments. The so-called aging of people is because the older generation and the new generation have different education, social background and cultural characteristics, so they have different living habits andValues.

However, young people show the different behaviors of the previous generation as a result of aging.

In fact, the so-called crystal intelligence such as the increase of age, speech ability, judgment and various skills learned does not diminish, only the fluid intelligence such as perception, memory, and computing speed diminish.

  Due to the rapid progress of modern society, social concepts and technical means are constantly being updated. The knowledge and skills mastered by the previous generation will soon become useless, and they will not be able to be supplemented and updated. However, this is valued by young people as oldSign.

  In fact, if the learning potential of elderly people with hypertension is able to continuously adapt to new social thinking, master new skills in time, and follow the trend of the times, it will inevitably delay the “aging” process.

With the aging of society, continuing education for the elderly will become a necessary means to adapt to social development.
