FAMILY STUDIES - FAMILY OF ORIGIN MODEL (FAM 152)

Prerequisites:
Credits: 1 - 12

This two week seminar is designed to provide students with a model to understand the dynamics of family life. It examines the eight elements that  impact the nuclear family (family of origin). Understanding these elements, examined in a holistic way, helps the student to evaluate the interpersonal life dynamics of a family. The first week entails learning the core elements of the Family of Origin model and applying them in the student's own family of origin. The second week consists of applying the elements of the model (along with the Genogram model) to the Old Testament three generational patriarchal family of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
