SPCL 7804 Human Development: Session 10: Unit 4 – Adolescence

Open Educational Resource (OER) created for Professor Elizalde-Utnick's SPCL 7804 course.


Consider your development during adolescence. What risk factors affected you? What helped to promote resilience in you? Describe your cognitive development.


In this session we move on to adolescence and consider growth, risk factors, and resilience in adolescents.  We will spend much of the session discussing cognitive development. We will begin with a quiz on the assigned reading and then discuss the material and engage in application activities.
