Conceptual Frameworks in Human Development and Family Studies.
(3cr)
Human development and family studies are two fields that have, over
the years, been brought together to inform our understanding of
process and behavior in families and among family members. This
course is intended to familiarize students with the major conceptual
frameworks that inform our understanding of human development and
family studies. For this purpose, we will draw on two disciplines in
social and behavioral science, developmental psychology and
sociology. Each framework addressed in the class will be explored in
relation to human development, family studies, or both. In addition, we
will explore the limitations inherent in each framework.
