Introduction Domain Life stages Conclusion

We will consider development as it occurs across three separate, overlapping domains. Because important relationships exist where these domains overlap, psychologists refer to the process of development as biopsychosocial.

Biological Domain: bodily changes, maturation, and growth

Cognitive Domain: mental processes of knowing, which include imagining, perceiving, reasoning, and problem solving

Psychosocial Domain: emotions, personality, and social interactions and expectations
