DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY 

Developmental psychology is the scientific study of how and why human beings change over the course of their life. Developmental psychologists explain how thinking, feeling, and behaviours change throughout life, including adapting our learning abilities and expressing who we become to be in the here and now.

Alex Cenem

Child-Developmental Psychologist

Learning, Development & Training Specialist

Consultant, Mentor, Coach, Tutor, Facilitator and Speaker

Author and Designer of the Dynamic Natural Assessment Programme©

and founder of the Interface Schema project©

As a child-developmental psychologist, I enjoy studying and researching cognitive, behavioural, perceptual, intellectual, emotional, physical, and pneuma subjects. I link these topics to understand and work through the full spectrum of the human development process.

As a learning and development specialist, I incorporate over three decades of work experiences and studies into my training and workshop programmes.

​And because I also enjoy editing, creating and producing videos, I like to combine this craft to work with multisensory perception, the basis of how we learn and absorb information.

​My main objective is to promote straightforward means to help humans improve themselves, individually, professionally and socially.
