CYCP-1032Child and Adolescent Development

This course begins with an overview of the major theoretical perspectives and research methods of contemporary human developmental research.  Discussion then turns to an exploration of development from a chronological perspective, beginning with conception, then moving through the stages of infancy and toddlerhood, early childhood, middle childhood, concluding with adolescence. Within each period, discussion is structured around the physical, motor, cognitive, and social-emotional aspects of development. Selected topics of interest will be explored in greater detail. A central theme of the course is the complex interaction between the environmental and biological factors that correspond to development.
