Family issues are at the forefront of national concerns, particularly in governmental, educational, and religious arenas.

Students will learn how families identify themselves through the creation of and practice of personal narrative and the genogram. This course also examines the ways in which family members interact in healthy and unhealthy ways to meet life's challenges and the ways media, government, and religion influence the family.
