Developmental Psychology

The programme focuses on questions such as: What psychological changes occur during infancy, childhood and adolescence? What psychological processes drive the development of children? Why are children different from adults? What can psychologists do to promote healthy development? The programme draws on the strengths of developmental psychologists working in the child development unit (CDU), which brings together academic staff and other researchers interested in studying developmental psychology among children and adolescents. The aim is to provide students with specialised knowledge of a range of theoretical and practical approaches to developmental psychology, and an understanding of how they can inform policy and practice across educational, health, forensic and clinical professional practice.
