Cooperative Extension Initiatives in Marriage and Couples Education
Goddard, H. Wallace; Olsen, Charlotte Shoup
Family Relations, v53 n5 p433-439 Oct 2004
Cooperative extension has a long-term history of delivering family life education. Further, the organization has developed numerous research-based resources and undertaken statewide initiatives in marriage and couples education. Most promising of all is the work of a group of extension specialists to create a practical, research-based curriculum that may reach communities in the United States through the established network of extension educators and their collaborators. We review various family relationship models and describe how the design of the new couples' curriculum is based on those models.
