Individual and Family Development.
Carlson, Jean; Simpson, Elizabeth
This curriculum guide, in working paper form, for a semester-long three-credit course in individual and family development is one of nine technical core courses in an associate degree consumer/family manager program. The course studies individual and family development through the life cycle. Emphasis is on the relationship of basic needs to the physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being of the individual as well as the influence of a healthy self-concept on one's growth toward maturity. The course includes an analysis of developmental stages throughout the life cycle with particular emphasis on the family's influence in helping the individual move through each stage of development. The course packet provides pre- and post-tests to evaluate the effectiveness of curriculum, along with other evaluation items, vignettes and case studies, charts and diagrams, additional content that is not readily available, and a descriptive listing of reference textbooks related to the course.
