Unit 4

Lesson 1


Objectives
Objectives

  • Define developmental psychology and discuss primary areas of interest.

  • Discuss how psychologists study development.

  • Describe prenatal development.

  • Identify neonatal abilities.


Warm up
Warm Up

  • What is developmental psychology?

  • Study of progressive changes in human traits and abilities that occur throughout a lifespan


Areas of development
Areas of Development

  • Physical Dvpt

    • All physiological changes that take place

  • Cognitive Dvpt

    • Changes associated with thinking processes of behavior

  • Social Dvpt

    • Changes in self-identity…changes in interaction w/others and the environment


Major issues
Major Issues

  • Nature vs Nurture

  • Are we more affected by heredity or environment?

  • Continuity vs Discontinuity

  • Is dvpt change gradual or do we progress through distinct stages?


Methods
Methods

  • Longitudinal: Study same group over period of time…

    • Child A at 10 yrs  14 yrs  18 yrs old

  • Cross-Sectional: Study different groups at same time…

    • Child A 10 yrs old

    • Child B 14 yrs old

    • Child C 18 yrs old


Methods1
Methods

  • Cross-Sequential: Mix of above…

    • Child A at 101418

    • Child B at 141822

    • Child C at 182226

  • Studies discern milestones: most typical aspects of dvpt


Periods of human life span
Periods of Human Life Span

  • Conception

  • Prenatal Period (0-9 m)

  • Infancy (B-20 m)

    • Neonatal (B-3 weeks)

  • Toddlerhood (1-3 y)

  • Preschool Period (3-6 y)

  • Middle Childhood (6-Pub)

  • Adolescence (Pub-21)

  • Late Adulthood (65+)


Prenatal dvpt
Prenatal Dvpt

Time pd from conception to birth

  • Physical Dvpt:

    • Cephalocaudal

    • Proximodistal

      • Center Outward

  • Teratogens:
