This course uses an ecosystem perspective to view and address issues affecting families and their relationships to other institutions and to society in general. Students will develop an understanding of the complexities of family roles, relationships, interactions, and changes throughout the lifespan, emphasizing the interplay of social, developmental and health factors in affecting change, continuity and well-being. The course also reviews assessment tools used to analyze family systems and prevention education interventions designed to support family function and well-being.
