Short Course Description

Developmental psychology investigates how the human mind develops throughout the lifespan. This psychology course will examine how babies, children and adults develop the ability to function in the world, how they attach to others and how they communicate and think about their environment.
In this course we will learn about the concept of "development" and about various psychological theories of development; we will also learn about the biological foundations of psychological development and about different stages of cognitive, emotional and social human development. In the last part of this course we will study the development of gender and we will also learn about various environmental factors (like traumatic events) which affect normal development.
