Social Processes among Peers

PSY 337S

Peers play an intense and important context for development from childhood through adolescence. This course will examine some of the most central social processes (both positive and negative) that occur among peers (e.g., aggression, victimization, rejection, group acceptance, leadership, prosocial behavior), how these processes influence the development of the individual child and adolescent, as well as their predictors and associated outcomes. Gender and ethnicity differences will also be considered. Recommended prerequisite: Psychology 103 or 104.
