Theories about child development changed over the past fifty years as researchers and theorists began to observe infants and parents closely and to base their theories on these actual observations of infants and of the parent-infant dyad.  This course will help all professionals working with children and adults to become familiar with the major infant research projects and the theories of development that have emerged from this research.  The course will explore the impact that infant research has had on accepted theories of child development, especially those of Sigmund Freud, Melanie Klein and Donald W. Winnicott.  Participants will explore how changing theories of child development have influenced psychoanalytic techniques, educational approaches, and therapeutic and educational interventions to strengthen parent-child bonds and relationships. In addition, they will come to understand various research protocols and critically assess the validity of the research studied in the class.
