Puberty represents the most salient developmental milestone in early adolescence (10 through 14 years of age). Although it is commonly thought of as the emergence of secondary sexual characteristics (e.g., breast development, body hair growth), there are a multitude of other important biological, psychological, and social changes associated with puberty. This course examines several questions concerning the impact of pubertal change on social and emotional development during early adolescence. Does pubertal development contribute to the shifts in family relations during this time period? Does pubertal development prompt changes in existing peer social networks and friendships? How does the timing of pubertal development contribute to the onset of psychological problems? What kinds of experiences and relationships help pubertal children mature into healthy adolescents? In this course we will discuss these and other questions and will critically examine research methodology used to test these issues.
