PSY 426 - Development and Interpersonal Relationships

2010-2011 Catalog Year

The principal goal of this course is to achieve an advanced understanding of how interpersonal relationships develop over the course of the lifespan, from the cradle to the grave. Using both attachment theory as the main conceptual framework and work from a variety of other related research traditions (e.g., family systems theory, social cognition, peer relations, developmental psychopathology, child maltreatment), we will examine how different types of social relationships e.g., child-parent relationships, romantic relationships, friendships) emerge throughout development and how the quality of these relationships effect broad and specific aspects of personal functioning and overall well-being.

PREREQ: PSY 290 or instructor permission.
OFFERED: Irregular
