Creativity in later adulthood.
The textbook authors provide a brief overview of creativity in later adulthood, but there is much more to expand upon! According to classic research by Simonton (1988), creative contributions in literature, science, math, music, and other areas decline with age. His data show that the peak of creativity depends, in part, on the amount of training required in a field. For example, creative production is at its highest in the 20s and early 30s for poetry, while creativity peaks in the 40s for philosophy and medicine, fields in which greater training is required. In all fields studied by Simonton, creative production drops significantly after these midlife peaks. You might want to share his instructive graphs with your class. To build upon Simonton’s view of the average by sharing information, Gardner (1993) conducted a careful examination of six highly accomplished individuals across their lifespan. While it may often be true that creativity is the province of midlife, he found that there are great individual variations in this pattern. Not only can these examples be used to demonstrate how creative accomplishments develop over a lifetime, but they help answer some interesting questions about the factors that lead to and sustain creative production. For instance, Picasso produced an average of one painting a day during his entire life, until his death at 91. Clearly, age is not a barrier to creativity. In your post, discuss how creativity can be encouraged throughout the lifespan, why encouraging creativity may be valuable in later adulthood, and the biopsychosocial forces that underlie changes in creativity over the lifespan.

Many of these questions can be answered using material from the textbook, but conduct an Internet searches to deepen your understanding of the issues. 
What are the risk factors for domestic violence?
For each of the risk factors you listed, provide one idea of how that risk factor could be decreased or prevented.
What are the physical needs of victims of domestic violence?
What are the psychological needs of victims of domestic violence?
What are the barriers that prevent victims of domestic violence from seeking help? 
Brainstorm a prevention program that could help prevent domestic violence from starting in the first place.
Brainstorm an intervention program that could help prevent further instances of domestic violence in a family once abuse has already occurred (again, take into consideration what you have written on the previous page).
Finally, is it possible  to blend your prevention and intervention ideas into one comprehensive program that addresses the problem of domestic violence?

Elder abuse and neglect. The issues of elder abuse and neglect are so important

Elder abuse and neglect. The issues of elder abuse and neglect are so important that it is worthwhile to expand upon the information presented by the textbook authors. You can do so by reading an extensive publication prepared by the American Psychological Association (APA) entitled “Elder Abuse and Neglect: In Search of Solutions.” Among the many facts the APA provides are that most incidents of elder abuse occur at home, even older adults with no risk factors can be abused or neglected, that family stress often triggers elder abuse, and that dependency is a contributing factor in elder abuse. The APA also offers observable signals of the various types of elder abuse. In your post, discuss what can be done to prevent elder abuse, mechanisms for more systematic detection of cases of elder abuse, and the biopsychosocial factors underlying elder abuse and neglect.

One of Dr. Martinson’s private practice clients, Sara, divulges she had an affair with her former counselor who is employed in the same agency as Dr. Martinson. Sara also reports that the other counselor had been physically and sexually abusive towards her 4-year-old son. Dr. Martinson decides not to say anything to his accused colleague. He telephones the Department of Social Services to report the alleged child abuse, and also to the state licensure board for professional counselors to report the alleged sexual activity between the former counselor, the client, and her son.
After reading the case study, what are your thoughts concerning Dr. Martinson’s course of action? What might you have done if you were Dr. Martinson.
