Omschrijving As individuals grow from young children to adults, they encounter manifold situations in which they interact with others. In this course, we zoom in on significant others across the life-course – parents, peers, siblings, teachers, partners, own children – and explore how these interpersonal contexts shape the individual and influence social, behavioral, emotional, and cognitive development. From this perspective of socialization agents, we review traditional learning and socialization theories and discuss competing ideas about the role of socialization agents for different domains of development to arrive at a comprehensive and critical understanding of interactions between individual and significant others and the consequences thereof.
