PSYCHOLOGY 206 LIFESPAN DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY

Welcome to this Lifespan Developmental Psychology class.

In this course, we will explore psychosocial development across the lifespan and across cultures. We’ll examine development from the perspective of major theorists in the field, scientific evidence supporting and/or refuting those theories, and examine newer theories that place more emphasis on cultural factors impacting development. Much emphasis will be placed on application of theories to enhance the lives of individuals and the functioning of groups with which they identify.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
