one of the following interviews.
For Option C:

Before gathering specifics during the actual interview please consider sharing with your
interviewee what you have learned in the course regarding the biopsychosocial
framework with its life cycle factors. For instance, what makes me, me (or you, you) has
a lot to do with biological, psychological and social cultural factors affecting
development as well as significant life events that occur at specific times during
development. You may want to give specific examples from each category to assist with
the discussion.
Be sure to ask the interviewee the following questions but introduce them in a way that is
appropriate / authentic for you and them:
1. What role has your biology (genetics, neurochemistry, effects of medications,
immune responses, fight / flight / freeze responses, bodily response to stress,
etc…) played in your life thus far? [Aim to address at least two to three with the
interviewee. You are to write about two or more biological factors that impacted
their development.]

emotions, attitudes, memory, perceptions, beliefs, stress management strategies,
personality style, etc…) affected your life thus far? [Aim to address at least two to
three with the interviewee. You are to write about two or more psychological
factors that impacted their development.]
3. From a social perspective, what role did your sense of family, community,
connectedness, medical care and socioeconomics play in your life thus far? And

your culture &/or cultural practices play in your life thus far? [For these two
questions aim to address at least two or more with the interviewee. You are to
write about two or more sociocultural factors that impacted their development.]

age when it occurred) that played a big role in your development? If so, can you
tell me a bit about these events? (If possible, please attempt to write about the
impact of two or more critical life events, their timing and likely impact upon
their development.)
For your Concluding paragraph please provide a summary of your interviewee’s life
and development. In addition. please be sure to address the following two tasks:

Erikson’s Psychosocial Stages of Lifespan Development? Be sure to support
your answer.

would place them on Erikson’s Psychosocial Stages of Lifespan
Development? Be sure to support your answer.
For Option D:

Due to any health concerns &/or need for schedule flexibility please consider conducting
your interview via the phone or other e-formats such as Zoom, FaceTime, and the like.

about it? According to your family or culture’s practices what are the methods or
ways of expressing grief? Were these followed or embraced by you during your
time of loss? And if so, what was their impact upon your journey?
3. If you could give one piece of advice to a young person on how to live, what
would you say? Why is this piece of advice important to you? When you were a
young adult, did you ever receive a piece of advice or wisdom for your journey?
If so, how did that bit of wisdom affect your choices &/or path?
4. Most days what brings you a sense of contentment or happiness? After your
death what do you think you will have left the world?
