EDUC 1006 - Child, Family, and Community Relationships♦


(5 cr.) Complex events, such as divorce, child abuse and neglect, and illness and death of family members, are common occurrences in today’s society. This course is a survey of the ways in which professionals and families work together in supporting child and family resiliency within the context of these complex issues. Education professionals explore formal and informal communication strategies; family participation in group settings; family education; advocacy for families; and the impact of family, culture, and community on children’s development and learning within early childhood programs. Through this course, education professionals have the opportunity to gain the communication and conflict-management skills needed to prepare for future professional challenges in the field of education.
