In researching the topic of social development in adulthood I came across an article titled Psychological maturity in early adulthood: Relationships between social development and identity” from the Journal of Genetic Psychology. I chose this article because I think it is a good representation of how a student evolves through college. The article does a good job of explaining how they went about their study. Winefield and Harvey (1996) this article starts out with a background of studies and theories from earlier generations. The article then outlines a study of university students between the ages of 23 and 26. These students were both male and female and either full or part-time students. The goal of this study was to explore the relationships, if any, between social development toward adulthood and the development of a sense of personal identity in individuals of an age when both of these elements are of paramount importance for developing psychological maturity.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
