Demographic considerations for the population. Age 40-65 years Middle age adulthood is the transition of going through lifespan changes from a young adult and old age while preparing for late adulthood. ************************************* Significant developmental milestones and competencies During this stage, they are working to establish stability and structure — Erickson’s idea of generativity-attempting to produce something that makes a difference in society. Inactivity and meaninglessness are common fears during this stage. Erik Erickson suggested that middle adulthood encompasses a period he characterized as the generativity-versus- stagnation stage. One’s middle adulthood, according to Erickson, is spent either in what we called generativity, making a personal contribution to family, community, work, and society, or in stagnation.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
