Family Focused Practice: Agency and Home Based


More Information

EAD808 - Family Focused Practice: Agency and Home Based

Family-focused practice takes different forms across Canada. Students will gain an understanding of the nature of both universal and targeted programs that address common parenting needs as well as those issues faced by multi-risk families. Empirical research is examined in order to understand how principles of family support have evolved and been transformed into community and home-based programs on all three levels (federal, provincial and municipal). The challenges of building and maintaining relationships with families, both informally and formally, are explored. Students will analyze and design strategies and interventions that are parent-focused and parent-child focused in order to reach goals set by families. As future practitioners, students will identify potential opportunities for joint collaboration among community service agencies on behalf of young children and their families.
