PSY 149 Infant/Toddler Intro to Development
This course is designed to help adults begin to see and understand infants and toddlers from the inside out. By examining the work of major theorists and researchers such as Margaret Mahler, Erik Erikson, Daniel Stern, Arnold Gesell, Jean Piaget, B.B. Skinner and others, and applying these materials to our observations of actual children in program settings, we will focus on learning about the development of the whole child. The social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs of children within group care settings. Through a combination of lecture, small workshops, hands-on projects and audio-visual presentations, students will gain a basic foundation in both early child development and the application of this information to a program. Special emphasis will be placed on learning to observe and integrating these observations with classroom presentations.
