I happen to be doing a research paper for my Developmental Psychology course on Mid-Life Stress. I find the research fascinating and would love some help in the process.
If you happen to be between the ages of 35-50, would you be willing to answer my poll question to the left? It would help me out!! Thanks!!
Also, another huge help to me would be answering this survey if your age falls between 35-50. You can copy and paste the questions into an email and send it to:
Option A: Middle Adult Interviews (POP #3A)
Interview two males and two females between the ages of 35 and 50. Discuss their experience in middle adulthood. Develop a common set of interview questions (approximately 10-15) to be used with each individual that will help you understand the issues, concerns, joys and challenges of middle adulthood. Compare your findings with your reading in your textbook. Do your interviews confirm the concepts taught in your textbook with regards to middle adulthood? Submit your interview questions and responses. Also, submit a two to three page paper that compares your finding with the reading in the text and answers the questions as to whether the interviews confirm the concepts taught in the text and how.
What physical changes have occurred after age 35? (i.e eyesight, bone structure, limb strength)
