Recent Graduate Courses Taught in Developmental Psychology

 

  • Psychology (CSP) 562: Developmental Research Methods--The goal of this course is to address the nature of different developmental methods and designs and their application to different programs of research, especially as they pertain to central disciplinary issues of stability and change in development. Course curriculum covers characteristics of measurement and methodology (e.g., questionnaires, interviews, observations, developmental assessments), research design (e.g., experiments, quasi-experiments, naturalistic and field research), and analytic models (e.g., multivariate, developmental).
  • Psychology (CSP) 560: Family Processes in Childhood--Covers the developmental psychopathology of family relationships with a specific focus on how parent-child, interparental, sibling, and whole family relationships play a role in the development of children's psychological adjustment and maladjustment. Current directions in empirical research, theory, methodology, and their interplay are emphasized.
