From child to adult
This subject explores ways different societies have viewed childhood and adolescence over time, and different perspectives about human growth and development reflecting contemporary beliefs and values. Even before birth genetic and environmental factors influence human growth and development, and from infancy, through childhood, into adolescence and onto emerging adulthood a variety of developmental factors shape the way we experience the world, learn about the world and engage with the world. Understanding human development and the issues underpinning growth, identity, learning, relationships building and the transition to adulthood are significant foundations for any career involving working with people and the wider community.
