This course explores a social justice lens through which family service providers can view prohibitive barriers that negatively impact family well-being. Learners are encouraged to reflect on their own experiences, and begin to envision equitable pathways to well-being for the families they serve by blending theory into practice.

Begin the Course

Course Details

Family service providers will engage the concepts of social justice, intersectionality, and well-being as opportunities to support social justice action culminating in family well-being. An understanding of intersectional self-identification, in addition to intersectional marginalization, will provide service providers with frameworks to help families from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds navigate paths to well-being. 

Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:

  • Define and appreciate the nuances of social justice, intersectionality, and well-being
  • Understand the cultural significance of families unlike your own.
  • Examine the racialized, gendered, and sexual histories of the United States
  • Create applicable solutions of well-being for family and community
