Positive Developmental Psychology
Faculty Members and Research Opportunities
The program has a wide-reaching focus on the applied aspects of positive developmental psychology. Graduate faculty interests and research specialties span major developmental epochs (infancy, early childhood, adolescence, aging populations) and domains (cognitive, socio-emotional). Reflecting the applied nature of the program, selected faculty apply developmental research and theory to the study of vulnerable youth, including children with autism and children in poverty. Faculty also use their developmental expertise to evaluate programs designed to improve the lives of children and their families.
