Maturation: The Adult Paradigm
Irvine, CA – (Release Date TBD) –A clear boundary between adolescent and adult development has not yet been identified. In her enlightening new book, author Skipi Lundquist Smoot, PhD cites a majority of Adult Emotional Distress and Anxiety to fall on the continuum of Ego & Cognitive Immaturity/Maturity vs Neurosis/Wellness. Dr. Smoot defines Psychological Maturity as a necessary but usually disregarded “Missing Link” for attainment of functional resolution of anxiety. This Adult stage of Human Development leads to higher levels of ability to tolerate frustration, delay gratification and accept objective reality. Educational Methods for its achievement can be learned to help arrive at more successful life choices. We are born with a mission—to explore our own path. Psychological Maturation requires tolerance of personal differences without giving up individuality in the presence of emotional or social pressure to do otherwise. Mature choices are based on ability to think about feelings and choose to respond to them or not based on what is best for the self and others in the long run.
