Family resource management theory is used to examine how family systems manage resources with an emphasis on examining the interconnections between families, communities, and resources through topics such as personal management (decision-making, time & organizational management, stress management); human and social capital (education, skill building, health, employability, relationships); physical capital (transportation, real estate, and housing); and financial management (credit and debt, budgeting, retirement issues, bankruptcy). Additionally, students will gain a better understanding of the basic principles relating to the process of creating family resource management education materials, and identifying, locating, and facilitating family resource management prevention education programs.
