The study of family dynamics in today's society begins with understanding of basic necessary functions such as domestic living, working, earning, educating the young, and sustaining the well-being of all. In addition, we consider the influence of family patterns and values on the lives of all its members, both within the family unit and beyond. This course surveys traditional and evolving forms of the "nuclear" family, multi-generational interactions, the extended and the informal family (among other types), especially in their impact on young people raised in a wide variety of family environments. Assignments include analysis of typical family behaviors and educational programming designed for family groups, especially in the visual arts and related subjects. This course is cross-tallied at the undergraduate level as CED 3030 and at the graduate level as CED 6030.
