For this assignment, imagine you are a counselor working with each of these three characters. Now, conduct the following analysis for each character: Identify the life stage he or she is in, along with the psychological crisis each is experiencing. Apply psychosocial developmental theory to the situation presented, from the perspective of a counselor: Conceptualize your ideas for the developmental tasks of each character selected, grounding your conceptualization in your own area of specialization. Include a discussion of the character's life and factors that might affect behaviors, including cultural and other influences related to the stage of development assessed. To the extent that it is relevant for each character, include an analysis of interrelationships among work, family, and other life roles. Include an analysis of the impact of cultural influences, as well. Refer to specific actions and words of the characters in the movie as evidence for your analysis. Support your ideas with specific lifespan theories discussed in this course, citing and referencing your sources. From a clinical perspective, assess how these three characters function as a family unit: Examine their functioning in relation to a model of resilience appropriate to your specialization, and evaluate their challenges and strengths related to wellness and resilience. As each character transitions to his or her next developmental stage, how will the transition impact the functioning of the family unit? Support your ideas with appropriate sources on the model of resilience you chose. Use the document Unit 8 Assignment Template (given in the resources) to prepare and submit your report.
