Development is mutual and interactional. As we develop, we internalize significant voices while integrating rituals, language, values and beliefs from the environment. We will discuss whether development is nurture-based or nature-based using various developmental theories. Topics include genetic considerations; prenatal development; the characteristics of the neonate; cognitive processes; language development; personality changes; early socialization; moral development.
