Child and Adolescent Development is the primary focus of the research and teaching of the faculty affiliated with this multidisciplinary center, located at Brown University. Child and Adolescent Development is an interdisciplinary field that studies processes by which infants, children and adolescents proceed through life in individual ways characteristic of our species.


The driving questions of stability, change, and transformation set this area of enquiry apart in the investigation of dynamic processes that underlie behavioral, cognitive, social and affective growth learning and maturation. Where students of adult behavior are interested in identifying basic principles of behavior, students of development are interested in identifying how basic behavior processes change over time in both species-typical and individual ways. Furthermore, the influences of social and cultural context are viewed as critical elements of these dynamic systems.
