DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY

PSY2DEV

2014

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject we will explore the discipline of developmental psychology from the earliest period of prenatal development through infancy, childhood, adolescence, and into adulthood and old age. Examining research undertaken using a variety of different methods will enable students to develop critical thinking skills for interpreting research results. Students will be encouraged to appreciate the interconnectedness of various domains of development; sensation and perception, motor coordination, emotional, social and cognitive development. Throughout, we will examine the ways in which very early milestones and features of development in each of these domains sets the scene for the later development of more complex processes such as adult personality, identity, moral reasoning, and the establishment and maintenance of supportive interpersonal relationships. In this way, we will explore the way in which infants come to develop into independent and socially-connected adults.
