Three hours per week.




Students explore development from conception to adolescence, integrating theory and applied perspectives, with particular focus on individual differences and diversity in development. Students are introduced to determinants of health and social wellbeing, encouraged to challenge 'common-sense' approaches and misconceptions, and promote health and welfare of children and adolescents. Translational research and interventions for improving developmental outcomes are reviewed, including systemic and innovative applied practices in developmental and behavioural health, education, child welfare, and law. This course may be credited towards Psychology.
