Jackson has developed phobias over the last few years, specifically to spiders, heights, and germs. He (or his parents, if you make him a child) is uncertain as to when they began or how. However, fear is debilitating and prevents him from being able to function in his life.
Questions to use to guide for response:
- What are the main features of Jackson’s cognitive, social, biological, and psychosocial development during two developmental periods?
- Which therapeutic interventions would you suggest for helping him to reduce the fear? (Hint: Again, consider his developmental period in order for appropriate interventions.)
- What predictions would you make for some developmental issues that might contribute to the phobias or prevent treatment from working? Get Social Science help today
