It can be challenging to truly understand a family’s roles and dynamics without understanding their cultural values around what it means to be a family. Whether we are striving to help citizens of another country or members of a different American sub-culture, much can be learned from seeking to understand the group’s parenting styles, contributing factors and varied outcomes for the children.
This workshop will examine child development and parenting styles across cultures. Participants will learn about current research related to parenting styles of the following groups: European-Americans, Latino, Asians and African-Americans. Additionally, there will be an exploration of the parenting styles of new refugee and immigrant groups in the United States. Class size is limited to 50.
