Abstract


Many psychological transition theories argue that there is a very strong connection between life span events and social events were individual spent their life. Some of these social changes are considered also conditions for individual changes to happen or not in a healthy way. In this study we try to gain some evidence about the nature and impact that social change has to individual changes that comes to an individual life span. Population on focus are Albanians during time of their social transition after communism, so after year 1990. Methods and instruments used to gain the data on this retrospective research are self- report, standard questionnaires and also paper and journals reviews. Individuals are Albanian people 40 years old at least. Analyses are made by a descriptive statistic. Findings shows that there is a strong and significant correlation between social changes such as political, economical and others (ex. emigration, migration) and individual changes in Albanian people during this time. Negative social changes such as increased crime or bad services on health, go to more distress and dysfunction in individual life span and transition. The article suggests that a better understanding of this interference and impact will allow better politics and care in both individual and social level.
