The Child Development library integrates history, philosophy, and the applications of child development theories. This library will take an in-depth look at the field of child development, and scientifically identify the changes that occur during childhood through adolescence and then understand how those changes come about taking into account outside sources that are known to influence and impact development.

The child welfare field is charged with assessing the safety of children while also working with parents to address factors that may have warranted their children’s removal from the home. When children in the foster care system are unable to reunite with their families, some other type of permanent living placement becomes the goal. For over a hundred years, the child welfare and adoption systems have continued to evolve while remaining true to their initial focus on protecting children. With an estimated 700,000 children believed to be victims of abuse or neglect each year, the child welfare and adoption systems continue to provide safety and stability for vulnerable youth. The child welfare and adoption systems must continue to adapt to the diverse needs of families in order to provide effective services. The provision of effective services will help to achieve residential permanency for children and stability for families. This overview of the adoption and child welfare systems will explore the history of child welfare and adoption in the United States. The course will also provide a chronological evaluation of how families become involved with the child welfare system, decisions to provide preventative services or to place children into foster care, the services provided to families, the standard policies and procedures of child welfare, and the decisions to either reunify families or to place children for adoption.

Each year an estimated 24,000 to 30,000 youth age out of foster care without having obtained a permanent family environment or long-term support system. Many of these youth are in crisis and struggle to function independently. Youth who age out of foster care have been observed to struggle with homelessness, incarceration, poor educational attainment, high rates of unemployment, and substance abuse (Spencer et al, 2010). Foster care agencies have created independent living programs to address some of the challenges that face older adolescents and youth aging out of the foster care system, but many are not effective at creating positive outcomes. Foster care agencies must look towards providing long term care for young adults who age out of the child welfare system. This overview of providing services to older adolescents will explore the risks associated with foster care, and why this population is more likely to experience negative outcomes. This overview will also evaluate services currently being offered to older adolescents, and provide suggestions which may improve service provision to this population.

Anxiety disorders impact more than twenty-five million people in the U.S., and these disorders are the most common mental health diagnoses given to children and adolescents. Anxiety disorders are often identified by common symptoms that may include the overwhelming feeling of panic and fear, obsessive thoughts, and recurring nightmares. In both children and adolescents, anxiety disorders often interfere with academic functioning in school and socializing with peers. In fact, adolescents with anxiety often drop out of school, negatively impacting their ability to earn a living wage as adults. Untreated anxiety during adolescence also increases the risk of substance abuse, a risk that continues into adulthood. Effective treatment for anxiety includes a combination of mental health therapy and pharmacological therapy. Treating symptoms of anxiety in adolescence helps to create positive outcomes in adulthood. This course provides an overview of anxiety in children and adolescents and includes an overview of the various types of anxiety disorders regularly seen in youth. This course will also discuss evidence based treatment approaches recognized for effectively treating the symptoms of anxiety in children and adolescents.

Few people think deeply about later life and the ways our culture and others have defined it and yet, most of us are likely to have preconceptions and sometimes false beliefs about aging and old age. Most people are preoccupied with their current lives and plans for the future: education, friends, relationships, careers, finances, and other markers of adulthood. Yet all cultures convey overt or covert messages and sometimes fears about old age. In this course, you will learn more about how society constructs old age as a distinct period of life. We will consider the importance of social class, race and ethnicity, and gender in defining people’s lives and opportunities. We will also focus on the myths and inaccuracies our culture perpetuates about aging, individuals in later life, and the process of growing old. Such beliefs not only pattern our own expectations about growing old but also have social, personal, and political consequences for older people themselves. We will also examine career opportunities in social gerontology. How gerontology developed as a field of study and the research methods used in social gerontology are also discussed.

Aging is shaped by demographic characteristics. As the population grows or shrinks and people move to different areas to live, the experience of aging in society changes. Americans aged 65 and older are currently more than 11 times the size of this group in 1900, and the proportion is increasing. This large section of society is more likely to live longer and healthier than previous generations, shaping how they will live as they age. This course presents key concepts used to describe population characteristics and how everyone’s life is patterned by demographic characteristics and changes.

Theories help us understand patterns of behaviors and aspects of social life and are shaped by history and culture. The field of gerontology seeks to understand social, behavioral, and psychological aspects of aging. Since individual aging is deeply intertwined with social change, each theory can best be understood in its relationship to the others. Not surprisingly, aging and old age have been studied from many different perspectives: that of individuals, groups, specific societies, distinct historical periods, comparative studies of societies, and so on. Some researchers seek to find similarities, and others look at change. This course will review the major theories of aging, differentiate between categories of theories, and include views on older adulthood.

Using the science of aging to improve the end of life represents a challenge, perhaps the greatest yet to face medical science. Solutions will not come easily the greatest human ingenuity will be needed to meet this challenge. Understanding longevity and life span are steps to improving the quality of health care and life as we age. This course will look at how we age biologically and the changes that occur, options for healthcare in later life, and the challenges of paying for healthcare needs of an aging population.

Who we are as adults is a process that begins in childhood and is shaped by society. Socialization is a lifelong process that only ends when we die. Social norms and how we understand ourselves can change and are shaped by the society in which we live. Our personality, who we are as individuals, can be understood through theories of development. Theorists have proposed a variety of ways that we develop and how these impact our aging process. In addition, we will explore theories of personality development with specific focus on how each of these theories informs our personalities in later life.

Cognition refers to mental processes such as intelligence, learning, and memory. The ways in which we perceive, recall, reason, make decisions, solve problems, and make sense of the world around us are all cognitive processes. Does intelligence decline with aging? Is memory loss inevitable as we grow old? These are questions that gerontologists who study cognitive processes among older adults have focused on during the past few decades. This course will discuss two of the most common modes of studying cognition in later life are the psychometric model and the information processing model. In this course, you will learn more about how society constructs old age as a distinct period of life. We will consider the importance of social class, race and ethnicity, and gender in defining people’s lives and opportunities.

Most of us spend at least some of our adult life working or looking for employment. Some of us choose not to work for paid money and engage in volunteer work while a parent may stay home for periods of time to care for young children and stay out of the labor force. For those who are part of the labor force as they approach older age, issues of retirement become a concern, and finding time for leisure is always a concern. This course will discuss the labor force, how participation is calculated, factors affecting participation, issues surrounding retirement, and how adults approach leisure in later life.
