Patti McManamy Provides Real World Glimpse into Child Development for Psychology Class

Psychology Class8Licensed social worker Patti McManamy visited Psychology class on February 24th, to discuss child development, attachment, and play and culture. She brought props that she uses with children, facilitated some mock therapy sessions with our students, talked about how children use play to express themselves, and how play changes throughout developmental stages. Patti’s visit is part of teacher Meghan Lena’s Psychology Class unit on Human Development. As a result of the unit, students in the class will write essays on a childhood object, relationship, or place that was particularly important to them and about how that object, relationship, or place was a part in their own human development. Psychology is a history department elective and is typically taken by 11th and 12th graders. To see more photos of the class, please visit our gallery on SBS Daily.
