PSYC 229 - Adolescent Psychology

(3,0) 3 Credits

Prerequisite(s): PSYC 103 - Introduction to Psychology .
This course focuses on the adolescent in contemporary society, with an emphasis on examining developmental changes experienced as individuals leave childhood and approach adulthood.  This course will be infused with relevant contributions made within the fields of biology, history, sociology, and anthropology.  Adolescent Psychology examines the historical development of the concept of adolescence as well as the contemporary, yet differing views of what it means to be an adolescent.  Topics include, but are not limited to, biological, cognitive and social changes in the adolescent; the influence of the family, school, work, and peer groups; the development of identity, autonomy, achievement, intimacy, and sexuality; and the psychosocial problems during this period of the lifespan.
