Growth & Development

Ψ  It has been suggested that many specific life events foster cognitive development.
   •  Parenthood, for example, may offer "insights into the interdependence of the larger social system."
   •  Other life events associated with deeper thinking about the nature & meaning of life include:

       New changing intimate relationships
       New job promotion or dismissal
       New exposure to a radically different lifestyle
       New intense religious experiences
       New the loss of a loved one
