Human Development

Human development involves changes in behavior and abilities across the lifespan. This week, we look at the emotional, social, mental, and cognitive changes observed during the prenatal stage, early childhood, puberty, adulthood, and old age. We will use a scientific approach to examine how and why humans change over the course of their lives, comparing and contrasting the psychosocial changes associated with each stage of development.
