Chapter 12 in the course textbook discusses the impacts of caregivers and culture on gender development in early childhood. Based on the textbook chapter and one peer-reviewed journal article, write a paper discussing the gender differences in development from a psychoanalytic and systems perspective.
Your paper should account for or reply to each of the following:
· Identify a gender development-related issue of critical importance to individuals and society.
· Summarize a psychoanalytic and a systems perspective approach to, and related positions on, this issue.
· Compare and contrast the two theories’ views on how gender development occurs, identifying and explaining implications for scholarly and professional practice.
· Present and defend your position as to which theory is most relevant and valid with respect to your issue as you have explained it.
Your paper should be 1200-1600 words in length and support your thinking by citing and integrating at least two peer-reviewed journal articles and at least one real life example.
