About this Unit
In 2010 this unit replaced by 101683 - Social Psychology and 101682 - Developmental Psychology. This unit explores a range of issues and controversies in social and developmental psychology. The focus within social psychology is on the cognitive and social competencies and behaviours of the individual, acquired and expressed in interpersonal settings. Within developmental psychology, the focus is on understanding the processes of change across the lifespan through studying aspects of physical, cognitive, social, moral, emotional and personality development. The unit covers key theoretical developments, research methodologies, and application to current social and developmental issues.
