Most of us agree that the family is primarily responsible for ensuring the safety of children and for providing the nurturing and guidance children need.  Because of the increase of intense family stressors over the past few decades, the family’s ability to nurture healthy children has greatly diminished. The likelihood has increased that our youth will turn to substance abuse even during elementary school years.  It is for this reason this course will focus on Family-Centered Approaches to prevention.

Students will come to understand how adverse childhood experiences put children at risk through social, emotional and cognitive impairment. Students will learn the factors and stressors on families that cause children to be at risk, as well as understand how to promote positive protective factors.
