Description:

This paper describes the basic theories and models of human development and identifies the psychologists responsible for them. It then presents the case study of a man who suffered childhood maltreatment and later developed schizophrenia, tying his condition to the theories and models.

From the Paper:

"The concepts of human development theory or developmental psychology were not forged by a single individual but through iterative contributions by many in the field of psychology-- Arnold Gessell, Max Wertheimer, Kurt Goldstein, Wolfgang Kohler, Lawrence Kohlberg, Kurt Lewin, G. Stanley Hall, Jean Piaget, Sigmund Freud, Sir Francis Galton, John B Watson. Many human development models and theories arose from Darwin's theory of evolution in which species development occurs in gradual continual and adaptive steps."
