FS1101 - Family Services II

Family Services II is the second course in the three course series. Family Services II will focus on family needs by looking at the challenges families face in today's society. Some of these challenges include balancing paid and unpaid work, poverty, stress, violence, abuse, divorce, blended families, and dealing with empty nests and aging parents. Often these challenges create many needs for families that require outside intervention or assistance. The purpose of this course is to provide students with the knowledge and practical skills to understand the needs of families and to be able to identify when families are not coping effectively. Students will learn appropriate strategies for dealing with dysfunctional families while gaining an understanding of the diversity of challenges and the diversity of solutions.
