CPSYC 3407 Critical Issues in Infancy

This course offers interested students the opportunity to pursue, in depth, selected critical issues concerning infancy. The last 15 years have seen a dramatic surge of interest in infant development. Theories of infant behavior and empirical research studies have proliferated. Students become familiar with the contemporary conception of the competent infant; the major theoretical issues of infancy; the new methodology which has made the infant more available for study; and the implications of the theory and research for child-rearing, early education, and social practice.
