Family Transitions Across the Life Span
PSYC 312
Spring 2021
Section: 01  

This seminar aims to provide an overview of normative and non-normative family transitions from adolescence through adulthood. Grounded in a life-course perspective, this course examines theories and recent findings related to family transitions. Topics include "modern" dating, relationship formation and dissolution, staying single, parenthood and remaining "child-free," family structure changes such as marriage, divorce, remarriage, and widowhood, as well as grandparenting, empty nesting (and refilling), and the "sandwich generation." From this course, students will learn developmental theories related to transitions across the life course, and be able to critically analyze recent research on family transitions.
