CHFD 3710 PEOPLE INTEGRATWE NEW EXPERIENCES INTO THEIR PAST HISTORY AND MOVE  FORWARD Continuity leads to a strong self-image, good mental health, and competence in daily life Each of the three theories—disengagement, activity, and continuity—offers insight into how  people adapt to change as they age. The life course perspective is a grand view of the life cycle. It includes growth through social  roles and stages in life. The life course perspective contrasts with simpler models of the life cycle. First, the life course perspective sees development as a lifelong process Second, this model sees development as a process through which the individual and  society change in response to each other. People’s individual life course development  depends on their physical condition, intelligence, personality, coping styles, resources,  gender, race and ethnicity, and the social world they live in.
