In order to fully appreciate the complexity of human development, the first half of the course will investigate the physical, cognitive, social and emotional aspects of the developmental lifespan. In addition, attention will be given to understanding complex theoretical approaches and research strategies employed in the study of human development. The second part will be devoted to psychopathological development as classified in the DSM IV-TR. Our study of behavior will be supported by empirically based clinical research and will use a biological, psychological and socio-cultural approach to understand the etiology, symptoms and available treatments for psychological disturbances.
