Human Growth and Behaviour

Course Code: SSW 102

Academic Year: 2019-2020

A combination of human growth developmental theory and family dynamics theory will begin this course. Growth patterns will be studied as a framework for differentiating typical and atypical behaviour. Development, beginning with conception/genetics and ending with adolescence, will be discussed. Woven throughout this material will be family dynamic issues and struggles and family scripts, legacies and secrets. The impact of family structure, boundaries, attachment, traditions and cultural issues will be explored.
