TEQ-433 Developmental Psychology (S22)
Note: This course will be replacing TEQ-423 Developmental Psychology and will now be 3 credits as opposed to 6. In this course, students will gain an understanding of development across the lifespan. A particular emphasis will be placed on the interplay of maturation and experience; that is, of the biological, psychological (cognitive, emotional and behavioural) as well as contextual factors that shape development over time. Psychological research, concepts and theories will be examined in relation to developmental/life tasks, milestones and processes. Students will develop knowledge and insight into how research and theory in developmental psychology can be applied to bettering our understanding of psychological adaptation and change.
