BKE 3343 - Working with Families/Teaming with Systems

Credits: 3 hrs
This course is designed to promote an understanding of parenting and family life from pregnancy through the first eight years of life. Using family systems and selected developmental theory as organizing frameworks, the course explores the structure and function of families, psychological processes of parenting, and the development of the parent/child/ family relationship within the context of culture and community. The contributions and challenges of early childhood disability to family relationships are also explored. Further, the course provides guidelines for examining the nature of the relationship between the family and Systems, as well as the tenets of relationship- based, family centered approaches to child/family/systems work.
