Credits 3.0


Traditional definitions of the family may have restricted the practice of marriage/couples/family counseling. As is well known, the nuclear family is now in the minority. By exploring historical, biological and cross-cultural evidence on families, this course will ""put the family into perspective."" The course will examine the many different forms that families can take, with a particular goal of exploring which aspects of families help the individuals in them to thrive.
