Child Psychology Fall 2014

Child Psychology Fall 2014

This course will provide an overview of the basic principles in development from prenatal to middle childhood. We will review trends in contemporary research on physical, cognitive, social, and emotional, development from birth up to early 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, and the larger cultural context. Then, we will examine physical, cognitive, and socioemotional development, with consideration of the cultural context, and focusing within each on examples of current research.

The program’s goals are three-fold: for students to make a meaningful difference through service while gaining valuable real-world work experience, earning a wage, and where appropriate, receiving college credit; for faculty members and staff, through their work with students in the program, to have additional opportunities to apply their expertise to addressing many of the city’s key challenges; and for residents, communities, and project sponsors to realize concrete benefits as a result of CUNY Service Corps projects.
