Module prerequisites: 
Module outline:The first half of this module will consider the systemic contexts for child development in terms of family networks, extended families, school and peer-groups, professional systems and cultural contexts. Emotional and social development in terms of attachment, theory of mind and mentalisation will be covered. By the end of this module students will have a good grasp of social and emotional development in the context of the relationships the child has with others and with the world around the child.  
Module aims:This module aims to provide students with a coherent theoretical framework of psychological and emotional development from birth, through infancy and childhood and up to adolescence. It will include some consideration of development in utero. The module aims to consider empirical research on child development from multiple perspectives including cognitive behavioural, developmental psychology, psychodynamic theory and developmental neuroscience. It will enable students to consider how individual differences in development are driven by environmental and genetic factors. Consideration of the culture and gender influences on development will be key themes.
