The Developmental Affirmations were identified over the course of many years, from
1976 until the present. It is important to keep the affirmations current. In 2018, Max Herzberg, a graduate student in the Department of Child Development, University of Minnesota, checked all of the affirmations and the “Jobs of the Child and Adults” lists to be sure they are consistent with current brain research.
The affirmations are a work in progress. I hope they will always be examined and added to.
You can build and examine your commitments to your values and causes, your roles and tasks.
