PSY 351 - Child Growth and Development

Credits 3
This course will focus on child growth and development from both classic and current theory and the effect that research has on our understanding of this complex field of study. The joint contributions of biology and environment to the developing child (birth through age ten) and his/her family will be examined throughout the course. Real-world situations will be studied and discussed as they pertain to the developing child and those who provide services including care, support, and education. Illustrations and distinctions will be made as they address commonalities and differences between ethnic groups, cultures, and traditions with particular attention to our Central Valley and policy/programming issues that are crucial for safeguarding children and their families. May not be audited. Degree completion only.
