This 4-credit upper division course is offered for students who anticipate relationship-based careers in clinical or educational contexts.  Faculty signature is required for registration. Goals for the course are to build cognitive and experiential understanding of the function of earliest relationships in child development and to examine theories of family development and structures for 'good enough' families as a context for individual development. Students will explore their own development and families as a context for applying theories. Class work include reading response papers, a final synthesis project, active participation in large and small discussion formats, and role play activities. This is an intense reading class- success will require staying current with weekly readings.
