  • Think about the final project topic you selected in Week 1.

Final Project Topics

Choose one of the following:

· Habits (their development and/or perpetuation)

· Risk-taking behavior

· Academic achievement (success and/or challenges)

· Post-traumatic stress disorder

· Healthy intimate relationships

· Group affiliations (e.g., religious, political, friendships, special interests)

· Pain management

· Occupational success and/or challenges

· Stereotypes (e.g., gender, racial, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status)

  • Select two theories you will address in your final project.
  • When selecting two theories, consider whether each theory could:
    • explain the origins and development of your topic
    • be used to develop strategies or programs to benefit human development relevant to your topic
    • address cultural differences or diversity considerations relevant to your topic
    • meet the characteristics of a good theory relevant to your topic
  • Keep in mind that the theories you select might not meet all these criteria; you will discuss the strengths and limitations of the theories as part of your final project.
