Candace Vogler psychology, child development, systems theory
Fields of Study
education and psychology
Preparatory for studies or careers in
Psychology, social work, teaching, counseling.

This course is intended for students interested in careers involving interpersonal relationships including counseling, teaching, social work, and psychology.  Studies in basic developmental theory will supplement class work focused on developing skills in intentional interviewing and how these skills connect to family systems concepts.  Students will explore how their own history reflects and shapes how they hear and work with others.  This course provides a foundation for more advanced academic and direct service work in interpersonal contexts.

Students must use their own audio tape and playback equipment (or equipment available through media loan) to transcribe and analyze in-class interviews and role plays as they develop skills in understanding the role of the observer in gathering clinical, personal, and ethnographic information.  Self and faculty evaluations are required.
