This course examines the interactional processes of family systems including communication processes, bonding behaviors, management of conflict and aggression, and negotiation of family crisis. Course Objectives After completing this course, you will be able to: • Applied the family science perspective in general, and family systems theory in particular, to explore contemporary family organization, interaction, and development. • Gained an understanding of family tasks and the strategies families use throughout various developmental stages. • Identified and analyzed relationships and basic processes in family systems. • Recognized contextual factors that influence families and their abilities to function as well as appreciate the diversity that exists both within and between families. • Apply course information to examining real life situations of families as well as evaluate outcomes of family processes on individual development.Course Outline As this is a distance learning course, all instruction and assessment will occur on HuskyCT. I have organized the course material into 12 modules, each of which will last the equivalent of 2 – 3 lecture days, based on my guestimation of how long we would spend discussing the same amount of material in person. Module folders will contain: 1 Lecture Handout for notetaking and exam prep, 2. lecture video, and 3. the Chapter Quiz (if applicable). Please let me know if you have any issues with the documents or files in the modules. Modules will “close” (e.g., I will remove the material from HuskyCT) at 11:59 PM ET the night before each scheduled exam.
