Developmental Tasks of Adolescence
PSYC 294
Spring 2017 not offered

Based on both clinical and developmental theory, this seminar is aimed at allowing students to master the primary intellectual and emotional tasks of adolescence through reading and group experience. We will ask what it means to have successfully individuated from family and explore how this need is expressed across four developmental domains--family, friends, fertility, and future--and how these milestones are evaluated and appraised. Students completing the course will be able to articulate why individuation and separation are essential to normal adult functioning and will also be able to develop summary statements that can be used to describe the level of functioning of an adolescent seeking therapy for a behavioral disorder.
