Course Descriptions

MFTS 533i: Family Development (3 units)

Using an eco-systematic framework, this course examines various topics central to families and their development across the life span. The course examines a wide range of developmental issues important to understanding family functioning (e.g., parent-child interaction, transition to young adulthood, divorce, death), with special attention to diversity in family types (e.g., step families, single-parent families and grandparent-headed families). The course emphasizes the clinical application of concepts. In Madrid, Spain, we will explore cross-cultural and national perspectives on family transitions (e.g., adolescence, young adulthood, parenthood, divorce, etc.) and the clinical services provided to help families in transition.
