More about the workshop:
Building on the work of Dr. Leticia Nieto regarding Life Cycle Spirals, students explore the theoretical constructs of Darder, Freire, Erikson, Piaget, Vygotsky, Hale, Dewey, Gardner, and object relations theory. This exploration of life-span development takes place within the framework of social justice and the social construction of knowledge. Students examine the ways that learners construct their knowledge of the world by engaging with others through living and acting in the world. Students work with the concepts of “holding environments” and “cultural democracy.” Students learn to recognize optimum human patterns and address them from a developmental perspective. The focus is on developmental themes, empathy, and culture.
