By Calvin A. Colarusso, M.D.
Clinical Professor of Psychiatry,
University of California at San Diego
Dr. Colarusso calls on his 50 years of experience as a child and adult psychiatrist to discuss universal developmental stressors and stress-reducing methods.
Among the developmental stressors he lists are:
- The teen's reaction to changes in body image, relationships to peers and parents, changes, choosing an occupation, temptations of alcohol and drugs, and leaving home.
- The young adult challenges of choosing an occupation and forming relationships.
- The middle adulthood preoccupation with changes in bodily functioning, concerns about masculinity and femininity, and caring for aging parents.
- The older adult's concerns about mortality of self and others.
