Department of Developmental Psychology
The Department of Developmental Psychology, headed by prof, Tiia Tulviste, is part of the Institute of Psychology. We are teaching different courses of developmental, educational and cultural psychology. Our research covers a wide range of issues related with child development, focusing on language, social and cognitive development from a cross-cultural perspective. We investigate changes in socialization practices at home and at school and its effect over time on children’s developmental outcome and psychological adjustment.
