Golden speaks to commission for libraries on ‘developmentally appropriate’ material

Carolyn Golden

Carolyn Golden, a licensed clinical psychologist and adjunct professor in the Department of Psychological Science, was invited by the Idaho Commission for Libraries to speak about developmental and psychological considerations for deciding what kinds of nudity or sexual information are appropriate for children to see in books, and what it means to say something is “developmentally appropriate” in the context of library material.

In addition to her adjunct position, Golden sees clients for therapy and testing at Northwest Neurobehavioral Health, LLC in Meridian, Idaho, where she works with children, families and adults, particularly those with autism, obsessive compulsive disorder and anxiety.
