HDFS536/PSY536 Research Methods in Developmental Processes
Methodological issues in research on varying stages of development across the individual life span.
HDFS519 Methods of Statistical Analysis in Human Development
An overview of basic statistical concepts, models, and methods for the analysis of development and change. In-depth study of linear regression with one or more predictors. Methods for estimating, and making inferences about, model parameters, and techniques for assessing model fit.
HDFS503 Human Development Intervention
A broad introduction to theory, methods and research in Prevention Science
HDFS508 Best Practices in Intervention
It covered interventions from the domains of prevention and treatment and discussed interventions designed to prevent or remedy a variety of behavioral and mental health problems and/or to build health and resilience across the lifespan. Integrating developmental theory, basic developmental processes, developmental psychopathology, clinical intervention and evaluation.
HDFS526/PSY526 Measurement in Human Development
Principles and methods for assessment of human developmental processes across the life span. This course was structured around four major topic areas: classical test theory; generalizability theory; item response theory; and factor analysis.
HDFS517 Multivariate Study of Change and Human Development
Models of development and change derived from empirical research utilizing multivariate research design and procedures.
A paper was developed as part of class requirement (unpublished). Latent Growth Curve Modeling using SEM to predict trajectory of adolescent depression from age 13 to age 15 using average family support across years and gender. Secondary data was obtained from the Colorado Adoption Project.
HDFS506 Program Evaluation
Design and evaluation of programs in a wide range of human services (e.g., health care, social services, education). It provided an introduction to theory and application of program evaluation, with focused attention to the details of how such work can be proposed and conducted.
