The purpose of this course is for students to gain an understanding of the intersection between sleep and developmental psychology across the lifespan, with a particular focus across the periods of infancy to adolescence. There will be an emphasis on (i) current empirical research and the relationship between sleep, behaviour and psychological health, or vice versa; and (ii) applied sleep research drawing on the principles of behaviour analysis and cognitive-behavioural theory/therapy.
