Ompare and Contrast the Current Directions in Lifespan Psychology.

Five main theoretical perspectives in lifespan psychology include: Psychoanalytic, cognitive, behavioral and social cognitive, ethological, and ecological. In this activity you will consider current research and applications related to these theories.

Choose three of the five theoretical orientations mentioned in the text and find at least two scholarly resources related to each theory. At least one needs to be a research article published in the peer reviewed journals in the past five years, the second may be a scholarly website related to the practice or application of that theory. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.

Prepare a paper in which you introduce each of the three theories that you chose and summarize the resources that you found. Include in your paper a summary and conclusion section in which you compare and contrast the current theme and directions of each of these three theoretical orientations.
