Cognitive and Affective Bases of Behavior: Life Span Development I

This is part one of a two-semester course sequence. The aim of part one is to provide a broad perspective on a number of themes that are of enduring importance throughout the life cycle and thus merit special attention. The themes have been selected for the significance they hold for the study of normal as well as atypical development. They provide us with a vantage point from which to consider some of the prerequisites for normal development, and they set the stage for a discussion of mental health and of problem prevention, atypical mental development, psychopathology, and remedial intervention.
