NST1104 Psychosocial Development: A Life Span Approach
Credit Points: 15

The unit examines human development from a local and global perspective discussing the impact of different environments and cultures on the individual's physical, psychological and social development. Differences in growth and change are considered chronologically in life stages from birth to death. The unit looks at past and current theories of psychosocial development and how, over time, scientists and researchers have changed the way in which they look at complex human behaviour.

Working in teams students examine case studies and work through the problems looking for a variety of possible solutions. Written communication and researching skills are developed with the assistance of the literacy support team in this beginning unit.
