Supplementary Resources and Course Slides


This module explores some theoretical approaches that highlight the cognitive, socio-emotional, and neurological development of children and adolescents within the context of their families, schools, and socio-cultural factors. The relationship between psychological theories and educational pedagogy are infused with the framework of liberation psychology. During the week intensive students are expected to engage in a thoughtful analysis of the theories presented simultaneously  grounding them within their professional identity and experience. During the online portion the self directed exploration of scholarly articles and videos will provide participants the ability to reflect on a variety of approaches as they consider the implications of shifting maladaptive behaviors.
