PYB358 Advanced Developmental Psychology

This unit advances your understanding of major theories and methods in the study of human lifespan development, with a specific emphasis on development in childhood, adolescence and adulthood, including late adulthood. As a unit that focuses on the application of developmental theories and research it builds on the knowledge and skills you gained in PYB203 Developmental Psychology, and provides you with opportunities to extend and apply this knowledge to consider normal and atypical development in childhood, adolescence and adulthood, including late adulthood. The unit also offers you opportunities to practice the use of developmental research methods and to develop further your critical evaluation, oral and written communication and group work skills. As such, the unit prepares you for transition into professional life and/or fourth year and postgraduate studies in the area of educational and developmental psychology.
