Social and Personality Development


INSTRUCTOR:  Dr.  Xinyin Chen


In this short-term seminar course, we will discuss current issues in the study of social, emotional, and personality development.  The course will emphasize an examination of the basic constructs, theories, and research methods in different areas.  Topics to be discussed in this course include socioemotional functioning, such as shyness and social withdrawal, social competence, and peer relationships.  The role of temperament, socialization and family context, and socio-cultural factors in social and personality development will also be discussed.

TEXTBOOK:  Shaffer, David R. (2005/2009), Chinese version

The chapters in the following books will be useful for the discussion of related topics:

Lamb, M. E. (2015).  Handbook of Child Psychology and Developmental Science (formerly The Handbook of Child Psychology), Vol. 3, Socioemotional Processes (7th edition).  New York: Wiley.

Hart, C. & Smith, P. (2011), Wiley Blackwell handbook of childhood social development, 2nd edition.  Malden, MA, US: Blackwell Publishing.

In addition to the textbook, there will be some articles as readings for the course.


Course requirements:

1. Class participation:  Students are required to attend each meeting of the course, and to play an active role in class discussion.  Students should prepare some questions for class discussion, based on the reading material. 

2. Classroom presentation and discussion:  Each participant will make one or two presentations of articles related to particular topics.  In addition, each participant will serve as a discussant of one or two presentations (articles) made by others.  Generally, the classroom presentation lasts approximately 25-30 minutes, followed by the discussion/evaluation, and then is open to general discussion of the whole class.   The presenter should present the main conceptual and methodological issues, findings, and implications.  The presentation should focus on the main ideas or parts in the article.  It is not necessary to cover all the material, particularly the relatively unimportant detail (e.g., items in the measure, complicated results).  Outstanding presentations also include effective communication with other students in the class.  Using equipment such as power-point, videotapes, etc. is encouraged.
