Through your analysis and application of the theories, you will identify how your life events enhanced your growth and development or challenged you.This assignment is divided into three parts and will be explained in detail in each module.
Part I: Using Microsoft PowerPoint, create a slide show of your life span thus far. This visual lifeline should include developmental milestones, unique personal events, involvement in sport and/or physical activity, and what may have influenced your decision to become a sport psychologist or counselor.
Part II: You will post reactions to the presentation of one of your peers.
