 Advancing Development Paper Assignment Overview Practitioners in the helping professions must be open to seeing people from different perspectives and must develop compassion for others. An understanding of the different stages of human growth and development provides insight into various populations and age groups for person-centered care. Learners articulate the theories for each developmental stage based on emotional, cognitive, physical, and spiritual factors. Learners identify challenges associated with the chosen developmental stage and propose applicable solutions to address these challenges. They compare and contrast their chosen developmental stage with the other two stages. They develop an understanding of the different stages of human growth and development and gain insight into various populations and age groups for person-centered care.
