1. The Family Cycle & Adult Development: Marriage, Parenthood & the Empty Nest
Once a person enters adulthood, the common belief is that development is nearly complete. However, marriage and children have a great impact on adult development. This lesson will describe developmental changes adults encounter as they marry, become parents, and become grandparents.
2. Models of Aging: Definitions & Types
There are different ways to describe how old someone is other than revolutions around the sun. We will explore a few of them and how they focus on either the individual or the individual's place in society.
3. Theories of Aging and Death: Programmed Theories vs. Damage Theories
We all grow old, and we all die. Let's explore the possible forces that are at work in this process. Is it predetermined how fast we will age and when we will die, or is it dependent on the amount of damage our cells are exposed to?
4. Definitions of Death
This lesson examines the medical definition and other broad definitions of death. Ideas like cortical, brain and clinical death are explored. We also take a look at psychic and social death.
5. Reactions to Death Across the Life Span
In this lesson we will explore the reactions many people have to their impending mortality. In here we take a basic definition of death and examine the anxiety and attitudes people have about death.
6. What Are the Stages of Dying? - Overview of Kubler-Ross's 5 Stages
Death, dying and the emotional responses one feels toward these topics are particularly challenging issues to address. Psychiatrist Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross proposed stages of emotional responses to death and dying. This lesson will present those five stages and also discuss common criticisms of Kubler-Ross's theory.

8. Dying with Dignity: Definition & Options
When a person is faced with a terminal illness, they sometimes want to control the timing and way that they die. In this lesson, we'll examine the dying with dignity movement, including physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia.

Death is a term most are familiar with, but the underlying emotions and processes that accompany death are not. This lesson will define and detail the stages of grief and bereavement. In addition, this lesson will differentiate between the grief process of children and adults.
