The Emerging Self

Fall 2015 quarter

Taught by

clinical psychology

The "emerging self" connotes our continued process of development through the life span. This program explores the concept of the self, a range of developmental theories, and frames the question of "Who am I?" as a therapeutic endeavor. We will use our personal journey of self discovery as one aspect of the emergent self. We will explore both established theoretical models as well as the literature of "self-help" to come to an understanding of the academic as well as the layperson's views of the self.
