This course provides a more detailed look at the development patterns that occur in normal adolescence. Physiology, identity, psychosocial and spiritual development, cognition, moral and ethical judgement, as well as environmental influences and typical patterns of behaviour among youth are examined. Students develop insights into the adolescent world through both the traditional problem oriented paradigm as well as through the strength based and resilience paradigms. Students acquire frameworks for helping families and communities support adolescents with normal developmental tasks and fostering resilience in these young people. Cultural competence for those working with youth are also explored.
