New Ans-PSY/PSY 211- Final Project Research Investigation

Final Project: Research Investigation2IntroductionThere are many factors that influence development, but the main categories are physical, social, and environmental. Much debate has occurred over history and is still occurring between the first area and the latter two; nature versus nurture, or internal biological influences versus external social and environmental influences. There is no doubt that nature has a large part to play in an individual’s development.

PSY/PSY 211 Final Project: Research Investigation2IntroductionThere are many factors that influence development, but the main categories are physical, social, and environmental. Much debate has occurred over history and is still occurring between the first area and the latter two; nature versus nurture, or internal biological influences versus external social and environmental influences. There is no doubt that nature has a large part to play in an individual’s development. From the time we are born to the end of our life, biological processes start and stop. We learn to walk, go through puberty, and our health starts to decline as we grow older; these processes are essentially “programmed” into us genetically (Santrock, 2018, p. 18). On the other hand, external influences such as culture and socialization with parentsand peers, nutrition, and medical care plays an equally important part in lifespan development (Santrock, 2018, p. 18). Indeed, environmental influences are possibly even more impactful, because we are constantly processing our experiences in the world, our relationships with other people, and viewing the world through our own cultural filter.In this paper, I will attempt the analyze environmental influences on lifespan development and address how relationships with peers and parents, social and media influences, and negative life events impact development by using historical research as a base to draw from. From the historical research I will identify a research gap and develop my own hypothetical study in a further attempt to analyze the environmental effects on lifespan development. Literature ReviewHuman Development over LifespanExtensive research has been performed on the impact of environmental influences on lifespan development, and even more specifically parental influence on infant development. 
PSY/PSY 211 Final Project: Research Investigation3is what authors Parfitt, Pike, and Ayers addressed in their study titled “Infant Developmental Outcomes: A Family Systems Perspective.” They aimed to examine if there was a significant relationship between mental health of the parents, the relationship between infant and parent, andinfant characteristics and the relationship of the parents, to childhood development (Parfitt, Pike, Ayers, 2013, p. 353). They claimed that poor parental mental health is a “risk factor for negative infant developmental outcomes” but postulate that paternal mental state is also a contributing factor (Parfitt, et al, 2013, p. 356). Since previous research has largely examined maternal mentalstate on childhood development, they added this to their study. They predicted that there would be significant correlations between poor quality of relationship between parent and infant relationship and poor parental mental health, as well as correlations between a poor couple relationship and behavioral problems of the infant (Parfitt, et al, 2013, p. 357).
