For your final paper, choose a topic from the list below or develop your own individualized final paper topic. These topics are starting points, so you are encouraged to narrow or further develop the topic you choose in order to amply cover your topic in 4–6 pages. After having a paper topic, choose a stage of development (e.g., prenatal) which you will place a main focus on when writing about your chosen topic. For instance, if you were to choose “development and role of attachment” and “infancy,” then your final paper would focus mainly on the development and role of attachment during infancy. More specifically, it might describe and discuss parent–infant attachment styles and how secure versus insecure attachment styles develop. In one to two paragraphs, you would also explore ways attachment may unfold or progress in later stages of development as well as the role or influence attachment can play (e.g., relationship development) in later stages of development, including at least one to two factors that can promote or hinder optimal attachment relationships. If you decide to write about a later stage of development (e.g., adolescence or adulthood), you would then discuss how attachment may have developed or looked like at earlier stages of development and at least one to two factors that could have promoted or hindered optimal attachment relationships in adulthood. Finally, in your summary and conclusion, offer one or two critiques about the topic or theories you have written about.
The final project must demonstrate your ability to comprehend and apply the course learning objectives. You will need to consult with your instructor on developing your final project and submit the topic and proposal by Module Three for instructor approval.
