HDFS 460 – Family Policy (4)

Family policies aim to protect, promote, and strengthen families by addressing one or more of the five explicit functions families perform: (a) family formation, (b) partner relationships, (c) economic support, (d) childrearing, and (e) caregiving. This course will explore the relationships between family policies and family functioning using state, federal, and international policy examples. By reviewing theoretical frameworks for conceptualizing family policy, students will assess the consequences policies may have for family well-being. This course may be subject to Enforced Prerequisites that restrict registration into the course. Check the offerings below for more information.
