6125 W8 – Assignment: Effects of Physical Development on Adolescents
You probably noted from the Learning Resources this week the interrelationship between the processes and constructs of development, in relation to adolescent development. Cognitive changes, including hypothetico-deductive reasoning, metacognitive skills, and more complex forms of thinking impact how an adolescent perceives and reacts to the world. Higher-order thinking contributes to how romantic and peer relationships are established and maintained.
Think back to your experiences as an adolescent and the feelings and thoughts you had regarding your developing body. How did your burgeoning cognitive abilities impact your adjustment to the effects of puberty? Did the imaginary audience and personal fable have any impact on your behavior and beliefs? Keep these questions in mind as you examine the effects of physical development on adolescents in this Assignment.

· Describe the culture of the individual in the scenario.
· Explain the influences of culture on the development of adolescence.
Be specific and use your Learning Resources to support your paper. Use proper APA format, citations, and referencing.
Week 8: Adolescence
Is adolescence really a time of emotional turmoil? Do adolescents in diverse cultures share similar feelings regarding this stage of rapid growth and sexual maturation? What happened to that well-adjusted child you knew in grade school? There are endless questions surrounding adolescence and puberty. The period of adolescence marks a time of physical as well as cognitive and social-emotional transitions: sexual maturity is reached; cognitive thinking may become more advanced and include abstract reasoning; there is a more defined sense of self combined with growing independence and more mature, intense relationships. In addition, many adolescents receive added rights and responsibilities in their societies. Some may learn to drive, finish high school, enter college, become fully employed, marry, and/or have children.
Risk-taking behavior may also be part of an adolescent’s experimentation with a newfound mind and body and additional rights and responsibilities. This week, you consider the influences on adolescent risk-taking behavior. You also explore the effects of physical changes in adolescence on sexuality, relationships, and self-concept. As you progress through this week, consider how diverse societies and cultures encourage and/or discourage some types of risky behavior and how sexuality and reproduction is perceived in relation to what is appropriate for adolescent behavior.
This week, you will examine risk-taking behaviors by adolescents as well as the effects of their physical development.
· Analyze influences on adolescent risk-taking behaviors
· Analyze strategies for risk-taking behaviors
· Create adolescent scenarios that reflect the effects of physical changes on sexuality and relationships
· Analyze the influences of culture on adolescent development
