CPsy 8360 Seminar: Child Maltreatment

Dante Cicchetti, Ph.D.
Institute of Child Development
Hartup Room 172
Tuesdays, 1:30 to 4 PM

This course will provide students with an overview of the far-reaching effects of child maltreatment from a multiple-levels-of-analysis developmental psychopathology perspective by a world-renowned expert in the field. The course begins with a historical perspective of the study of child maltreatment. Child maltreatment will be defined and cultural and sampling issues, along with intergenerational abuse, will be studied in the beginning weeks. In the following weeks students will study the effects of child abuse on attachment, emotion recognition and emotion regulation, self-development, peer relationships, adaptation to school, memory, behavior problems and psychopathology, resilience, biological sequelae, and genetics. In the final two weeks of the course, students will study research-informed preventive interventions for maltreating families and their offspring, along with future directions for research on this important topic.
