Risk & Resilience

Listed in: Psychology, as PSYC-323


Carrie Palmquist (Section 01)


This course will explore the roles of risk and resilience in early development. Using existing empirical research, we will examine: 1) how risks are manifested prenatally, in infancy, and in childhood, 2) how to support resilience in childhood, and 3) how to develop interventions to address risks and promote resilience. Over the course of the semester, students will complete four independent projects exploring teratogens, contaminated food, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), and intervention development. Through reading, discussion, short writing assignments, and more in-depth independent projects, this course aims to help students understand risk and resilience in childhood, and learn how empirical research can be used to develop and evaluate potential interventions.
