Course Description

Examines the parent-child relationship from a variety of perspectives, including cross-cultural and social class differences, differences between mothering and fathering, and the parents' influence on the child's psychological development (e.g., sex role). Emphasis is on the interactive influences of parents and children. In the last part of the course, programs for altering parent-child interactions are explored. While most of the readings are based on recent empirical studies, the course includes short stories and novels. Case histories are also relied on to capture complex, intangible phenomena like communication, trust, and intimacy. Recommendations: CSHD 1 or PSY 1.
