This discussion is designed to help you use what you have learned in this unit to help prepare for the Unit 8 assignment, Psychosocial Development Case Study Assessment. First, complete the readings in this unit related to early adulthood, including intimate relationships, adjustment to marriage, decisions related to childbearing, and all aspects of life in this phase of development. Then, review the case study at the beginning of Chapter 11 of your text (the case begins on page 418).
What are some of the challenges that this individual is facing? Knowing these challenges associated with trajectories and transitions outlined in the text, evaluate the developmental crisis and implications for an individual facing the psychosocial crisis of intimacy versus isolation.
Cite at least two references from the unit readings to support your work.
