    The biopsychosocial model describes the concept that biological, psychological, and social factors interact as complex networks that influence one’s health and illness (Suls & Rothman, 2004; Gatchel, 2007). One of the main goals of health psychology is to understand the relationship and interaction between these factors. Health psychologists examine treatment effects on a person’s health by applying interventions that modifies the three factors that comprise the biopsychosocial model (Suls & Rothman, 2004; MacKinnon & Luecken, 2008). Numerous studies and interventions have been designed to improve physical and psychological health based on the biopsychosocial model (cite some of these).

    A life stage is a period of human development for which the Association of Qualitative Research (2013) states “is assumed to be linked to certain opportunities and constraints and to be significant to certain activities or choices. In addition, it is suggested that different psychological tasks have to be undertaken as the individual matures, and transitions between life stages can be times of crisis.”Likewise, Erikson (About.com Psychology) suggests a theory of development in which people have to perform different tasks and positive social interactions throughout their lifespan to maintain a healthier personality. He suggests 8 life stages (infancy, early childwood, preschool, school age, adolescence, young adulthood, middle adulthood and maturity) of which young adulthood (19 to 40 years) is manifest by the conflict of intimacy against isolation, accompanied by significant changes in lifestyle and increase of responsibilities. By the same token (emotional and SDHEAH, (2013) infers that Identity, followed by intimacy and generativity are concerns in young adults. Therefore, Jesse Perrault (Psychosocial aspect of health care, P12) suggests that health care providers adopt a model of care that enable them to know their patients and help them to stay healthy, a model that takes lifestyle and psychosocial stresses into account in addition to biological factors because they are important determinants of heath and illness. The following paragraphs will explore the biospychosocial model of care in contrast to the biomedical model, will look at its advantages and critics, the biopsychosocial issues at young adulthood, how the biopsychosocial approach is used into in the ward where the writer was on placement, and the way the writer will exploit this approach in the future.…

    For most people tests occur throughout one 's life. People are administered tests for school, work, and other reasons. Testing can be for various reasons and there are different categories of testing. The major categories of tests are mental ability tests, achievement tests, personality tests, interests and attitudes, and neuropsychological tests. In order to ensure accuracy with testing, it is important to question, compare, and contrast reliability and validity of tests. Reliability deals with the stability of scores and measured traits and validity questions the purpose of the tests and what it measures (Hogan, 2007). Tests are also categorized by how they are given and by how much time one has to complete a test. The reason tests exist is because of the different needs people have, such as scientific reasons, medical reasons, or administrative reasons. Testing individuals can provide much-needed answers for production, progress, and even for life saving reasons.…

In the case of LaJoe it would seem that she had already achieved stages 1 through 6 during the early part of living in Henry Honer. As the decline of a positive community and family, LaJoe seemed to reverse on the process of developing her identity. Once positive, optimistic and eager to lifes posibilities she has now reverted back to some of the earlier stages of Erikson 's theory.
