Courses: Developmental Psychology (PSYCB510001)

Fall 2009

Class Number: 1462
This course 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. Will meet in BYC 235.
