This subject considers in detail the social and emotional development of children and adolescents. Issues such as a child's 'theory of mind' or the development of shame are considered in relation to social behaviour in childhood and adolescence. Influences on such developmental processes from family, school and society are examined and psychological explanations for child and adolescent difficulties are given. Students should note that this subject does not contribute to an Australian Psychological Society accredited major in psychology.
