CDFS 325 - Family Theory

Description
3 credit hours This course examines social psychological theories and research relevant to the study of families. Theories framing the foundation for working with families are explored as they assist in understanding of various concepts in the relationship between the family and its environment; intergenerational family culture, structure, and process; family life cycle processes; internal family organization and process; individual and family meanings and narratives; cultural variations (family heritage, social class, geography, ethnicity, race and religion); changing gender roles; and demograophic trend, among others. Students will examine the American family as a social institution embedded in a cultural and historical context. (Prerequisites: CDFS 300 and 303)
