Courses: Developmental Psychology (PSYCB510001)
Class Number: 1318
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.
