MUTY 560 Lifespan Human Development

The purpose of this seminar is to provide advanced students with an in-depth knowledge of human growth and development from the prenatal period through old age and death. The course will focus on the interaction of biopsychosocial forces on physical, socio-emotional, and cognitive development across the lifespan with an eye toward application of the material to practical situations as encountered by human service providers, such as Licensed Creative Arts Therapists and other Mental Health practitioners. In addition, special attention will be paid to the major theories of human development as they pertain to development from a lifespan perspective, as well as relevant recent research.
