Some researchers consider developmental psychology an applied research topic because

(A) it is more easily applied to people’s lives than research such as behaviorism.
(B) researchers apply findings and theories from other areas of psychology to the specific topic of human development.
(C) it is more commonly studied by a graduate student rather than an undergraduate because of the applications for other research.
(D) doing original research in this area is difficult, so most of the research is about application.
(E) pure research is difficult to gain support for, especially when a researcher needs to recruit children as participants.

(B) researchers apply findings and theories from other areas of psychology to the specific topic of human development.

Explanation
Developmental psychology can be called an applied topic because many findings from other areas are applied to the topic of maturation. Many topics such as behaviorism are easily applied to our lives. It is studied at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, many original research studies are done, and pure research is still well supported even when it involves children.
