Family-Centred Practice Across The Lifecourse
Family-centred practice is an approach that aims to support and strengthen parents’ abilities to promote their children’s healthy development and wellbeing. A family-centred approach focuses on the family as the unit of observation, programming, and intervention. This course prepares students for family-centred practice across multiple professional settings and lifecourse needs. Students will investigate how family-oriented services vary in purpose and structure. The connection and collaboration between services and families will be explored with an emphasis
on building family-friendly, family-supportive community structures that harness family strengths.
This course is offered through the Global Consortium of International Family Studies so the student cohort will include students from UON, University of Nebraska Lincoln and the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai India. Enrolment in this course is restricted to students in the Master of Family Studies (12277).
