Fall and Spring Semesters

This course will focus on fundamental concepts of family structure and interpersonal family dynamics that impact family functioning.  Particular attention will be given to aspects of diversity both within and between family systems including issues of race, ethnicity, class, gender, family structure and sexuality.  Students will examine the nature of family functioning and how human service workers apply theories of family systems functioning to address interpersonal conflict and aid families in promoting community resilience and change.  A core theme of the course is the issue of how the scholar/researcher/practitioner links theory to practice. Prerequisite: HSV 240 (SOC240)  and HSV 250 .
