  • 1. Developmental Approach Assumptions Assumes that development is an on-going process. Changes occur over a person’s lifetime as a result of inherited factors or lifetime experiences (nature/nurture). Strengths Longitudinal studies are data rich and allows you to look at development in an individual over a period of time Research in this area provides us with an understanding of how humans develop and change over the whole of their lifetime. Allows us to explain apparently abnormal behaviour in children Allows us to examine development from a number of different perspectives: Cognitive: includes increasing one’s knowledge and understanding of the world and learning language. Social: For example, gender and moral development, making friends, and learning pro- and antisocial behaviour. Personal: Such as development of your emotional self and your self-concepts generally (self-esteem, self-efficacy and so on). Limitations Where children are studied over a long period of time, it may be that researchers become more subjective. It is often difficult to replicate longitudinal studies; they can be time consuming and expensive. Ethics of investigating children is a problem for this area of research. Developmental psychology has a problem with time. To make highly valid comparisons about how people change over their lives, they need to study people for long periods of time. This may not always be possible and subjects may be lost from the study.
