PSYC 739 - Advanced Human Life Span Development


This course explores life span development through the lenses of social, cultural, cognitive, biological, and learning theories and research. The emphasis is on gaining better conceptual understanding of healthy development and better practical understanding of how to help children, adolescents, and adults address the developmental issues they face across the lifespan. There is a particular focus placed on understanding the impact of the family and culture on the individual. Attention will also be devoted to the application of research findings to ongoing developmental problems.
