PSYC 4342 Parenting and Family Systems
A survey of parenting models/programs, with special emphasis placed upon challenges of adults to become effective parents. Modern family dynamics will be covered as well as family of origin parenting models. How the family functions as a system will be explored and how parenting stress can affect the entire family. Models of counseling intervention that address issues not amenable to the effects of parenting education will be covered. The student will analyze their own family of origin parenting system.
