ADJ353: Child and Family Policy

3 Credit(s)
Many children in this country are raised in circumstances that place them at risk for a myriad of social problems. Consequently, a substantial number of these children develop antisocial behaviors or behavioral health issues that alienate them from their communities and undermine their ability to lead healthy productive lives. Finding effective solutions to the complex problems faced by many of our children and their families is one of our nation’s foremost public policy challenges. This course is intended to assist students to develop an informed perspective and conceptual framework on issues that impact children and their families. This helps students to become more effective, informed and fair-minded decision makers.
