Social Work Question
You are to reflect on your own family and cultural context while you were a child (4-12 years) in application to understanding of the following theories:
- Vygotsky’s Sociocultural Theory
- Erikson’s Psychosocial Stages
- Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Theories
Consider your development and relationships in reflecting on the changes you experienced biologically, psychologically and socially.
Discuss the impact of these relationships on your development as you matured (e.g. feelings of security, friendships, decisions etc.); integrate your knowledge of risk, opportunity and resilience.
Diagrams and tables may be included.
This should not be a detailed discussion of the theories, it is instead an explanation of your social relationships using the framework of the theories.
Integration of material from the text-books and readings on Moodle is essential.
