Biography of Daniel Levinson
Levinson was mostly credited for his development of the theory of adult development specifically in men.
This theory is famous because it is one of the only ones that believed growth and development did not happen until late into adulthood.
Levinsons seasons of life are considered a DEVELOPMENTAL THEORY
which deals with growth and changes in human behavior caused by PSYCHOLOGICAL changes in response to changes in life or life circumstances.
Levinson believed that early adulthood lasts around 25 years.
It begins near the end of high school (around age 17) and ends with a transition to middle age (early 40's).
Occurs from age 17 to 22 years old.
An individual must prepare to leave behind adolescent life and begin to prepare an adult life structure.
Emphasizes changes in the attachment between the parents and child.
Young adults must modify or end relationships associated with adolescent life to make way for new adult relationships.
Education is being completed and individuals are entering the work force.
Stage where building LIFE STRUCTURE is developed the most.
Levinson believed this stage of life had
4 Main Tasks:
1. Forming a DREAM and giving it a place in the life structure.
2. Forming an occupation.
3. Forming a mentor relationships.
4. Forming love relationships , marriage, and family.
Balance exploring the various options for their life structure with actually making a commitment to a life structure.
Until individuals begin to live their life, all of their possibilities are unknown, but without making some commitments or choices in life, one cannot determine whether their life structure is realistic or satisfying.
The core of the life structure.
Includes some combination of occupational, family, and community roles, with men being more likely to describe Dreams involving occupational accomplishments.
Initial choices of occupation, love relationships, and peer relationships may support their dream.
From the ages of 22 to 28, young adults build and test a preliminary life structure that integrates work, love, and community to attain their Dreams
Age 30 Transition
Occurs between the ages of 28 to 33 years.
Re-evaluation occurs of the life structures that they formed in their early twenties to determine whether they are living out their dreams.
Some things that individuals might decide at this point in their lives is to marry (or divorce), have children, or to change jobs.
Settling down in their thirties.
A time to “get real” after testing their earlier choices.

choices must be made, a new life structure formed.
person must commit to new tasks.
Some sources also stated that there was a late adulthood stage during which time a man spent time reflecting on past achievements and regrets, and making peace with one's self and others (including God).
life structure comes into question, usually a time of crisis in the meaning, direction, and value of each person's life. neglected parts of the self (talents, desires, aspirations) seek expression. Men are seen more as parents than as “brothers” to other men who are somewhat younger than them and this message comes as an irritation at first. Also at this time, men becoming increasingly aware of death and they are reminded of how short life really is. They become involved in trying to leave a legacy and this usually forms the core of the second half of his life.
