Courses: Developmental Psychology (PSYCB510001)

Spring 2009

Class Number: 1356
This two semester sequence provides an overview of theory and
research relating to the development of children and adolescents
within family, school, and cultural contexts and thus serves as a
foundation for future work in the department. Following an overview
of major developmental theories, we examine topics such as infant
perception, infant sociality, prelinguistic communication, attachment,
language development, the development of self awareness, early social
cognition and theory of mind, conceptual change, memory and learning,
parent-child relations, peer relations and gender issues, self-concept
and self-perception, moral development, logical thinking, and identity
formation. Topics are examined within a multicultural, ecological,
and developmental framework.
