Children's Social Worlds: Child and Adolescent Peer Relationships and Social Development

Description:
This course offers a broad examination of childrens and adolescents peer relationships; why they are important, how they change over the course of development, why some children are better accepted than others, and how early peer relationship difficulties produce echoing effects in adolescence and adulthood. We explore the important ways in which peer relationships influence childrens emotional, cognitive, and social development. We consider causes of peer difficulty, short and long-term consequences, bullying and victimization, friendships and peer groups, educational and community contexts, familial and cultural influences, and intervention and prevention programs.
