Human development from infancy to young adulthood. Dominant psychosocial, cognitive, and physical competencies; motivational changes; coping styles; and normative and non-normative behaviors. Three hours per week of service learning in an appropriate agency setting are required in addition to lectures.
By the end of the course you will: 1) Define child and adolescent development from the perspectives of key models and theoretical views. 2) Explain why major developmental competencies, changes, and concerns in childhood and adolescence are the consequence of the complex interaction of biological, psychological, and social factors. 3) Explain current research findings on the study of human behavior and development in childhood and adolescence. 4) Explain the major developmental crises associated with childhood and adolescence. 5) Distinguish between “normal/successful” and “maladjusted/unsuccessful” development. 6) Identify cultural, environmental, and social influences on human development. 7) Use knowledge about childhood and adolescent development to show how developmental changes and social shifts interact to affect each other. 8) Apply theoretical concepts to actual human development cases. 9) Demonstrate knowledge of service offered by a community agency (your field site) and successfully complete 30 hours of service to this agency.
