Fall 2013 Child Psychology

Fall 2013 Child Psychology

This hybrid will provide an overview of the basic principles in development from prenatal to adolescent. We will review trends in contemporary research on physical, intellectual, emotional, and social development from birth through adolescence and the impact of the interaction of these various aspects of development upon the individual as a whole. Major issues examined in this course include the relation of nature to nurture, of genes to environment, of the developing individual to the changing social context, and of mental health to school performance. We will begin with the history of developmental psychology, and research methodologies. We will discuss the contexts in which children live, with a particular focus on family, peers, and the larger cultural context. Then, we will examine physical, cognitive, and socio-emotional development, with consideration of the cultural context, and focusing within each on examples of current research.

New York: Reflections on a City

What borough and neighborhood of New York City do you live in, how would you describe it, and how is it changing? Have you lived here all your life, or did you come from far away? If you’ve lived elsewhere, would you like to describe that environment, and discuss how it differs from NYC (or how it’s similar)? What do you miss, either in the New York of the past or in the place that you came from? Click Discussion on the right, and tell the rest of us all about it!
