Family Life Education With Diverse Populations

Synopsis

Family Life Education With Diverse Populations by Sharon M. Ballard

Family Life Education with Diverse Populations is a T2 for courses in Family Life Education. Family Studies and Social Work students often go through the additional certification of becoming Family Life Educators (FLEs). As a family life educator, the student will help educate families in and outside the traditional classroom environment on how to strengthen relationships in the home and foster positive individual, couple and family development. Such education comprises many topics, including marriage education, parenting skills, anger management, to strategies in adjusting to divorce. This book takes the content delivered in courses on FLE a step further by examining and presenting key strategies for working with diverse populations. Diverse is defined broadly in terms of race and ethnicity, but also by setting, such as military families, rural families, families with loved ones in prison, and more. The book is unique in defining the group and presenting their strengths, and then prescribing treatments and strategies for working with each group. In addition, the book takes an evidence based practice approach and demonstrates proven strategies in working with the populations listed above. Sharon M. Ballard, Ph.D., CFLE, CFCS: is an Associate Professor in the Department of Child Development and Family Relations at East Carolina University. Alan C. Taylor, Ph.D. CFLE: is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Child Development and Family Relations at East Carolina University.

Reviews

I strongly believe in incorporating diversity in the classroom however possible and I believe this textbook will provide a strong opportunity to do this. -- Elizabeth Foley This book is just what I was missing in my course. -- Jacqueline E. Schwab I am impressed with the organization of content for each chapter. Having consistent coverage in each chapter makes learning easier for the students and teaching easier for the teacher. -- Cheryl M. Robinson
