Description

Developmental psychologists like Piaget and Kohlberg spent their lives studying how humans change and grow. They discovered that, while information is added linearly, our system of processing information changes abruptly in distinct “stages." These stages are sequential, invariable in order, and deeply affect the way a young person understands their world. Developmental stages also impact the nature of spiritual growth, as well as what a student responds to. Once you know what these developmental pioneers found, you will be able to make sense of all kinds of interesting characteristics you observe in your young people and be better equipped to lead them.
