Factors influencing human development
There are a number of factors that can influence someone's human development. An example of this would be housing. If someone is living in poor housing conditions, i.e. damp, lack of electricity or heating, then they can become prone to illnesses. Asthma can also be affected deeply by environmental conditions so the in a health and social care setting the following examples could be applied:
A doctor taking a holistic approach to giving a diagnosis. This means looking at all the problems that could be affected the child, rather than just the actual illness and symptoms.
A nursery or any other service for early years should ensure that all their buildings are well-built and well-kept. For example a child with asthma should not suffer whilst being at a service provider's as it could hinder their health.
Freud (Psychodynamic Approach)
- our unconscious feelings direct the way we behave.
- Deeply influenced by our childhood experiences.
- We go through psychosexual stages of development (shown on next card)
Oedipus (Boys) / Electra (Girls) complex: unconscious desire for same sex parent.
Penis Envy: fear of punishment for desires by SAME sex parent, i.e. castration.
ID - what gives us our 'i want' demands
Ego - tries to resolve conflicts between id and superego
superego - represents demands made by parents and society about how to behave
