I am the boss of me – the psychology of self in early childhood – Thursday 25th November at 10am

Cafe Science Extra – Coffee Morning Science

Every mother is familiar with the “terrible twos”, the age at which children begin to assert their independence (usually loudly, in the supermarket). Psychologists link this stage of development to the onset of self-awareness. Join us at Infusion Coffee Shop in Dundee Science Center (Sensation) on Thursday 25th November at 10am for this Cafe Science Extra coffee morning special talk by Dr Josephine Ross of the University of Dundee as she discusses how psychologists have tried to measure the onset and consequences of self-awareness in early childhood, and consider whether this research adequately captures the life-changing realisation that “I am me”.
