PSY 743 - Contemporary Families

3 Credit(s) 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.
