By the end of this module students will have a good grasp of the basic developmental milestones and several different frameworks for understanding these.  
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.
