CSOCS 3050 Parenting Resilience

This course focuses on the broad topics of parenting and resilience, and how these concepts intersect to impact the lives of children and families. Examining parenting through a multidisciplinary lens provides students with an opportunity to explore research and theory anchored in developmental psychology (e.g., systems theory), public policy and social welfare, education, and science/technology. Topics include: parents’ strengths and challenges; community-based supports for parents and families; the impact of race and poverty on parenting and resilience; and current efforts and resources available to parents in the U.S. and in other countries.
