This doctoral level course examines American and international public policy and law through a family lens. Economic; social and relationship; health and mental health; barriers and access to mental health; measures of child and family well-being; immigration and migration; and housing policies are few of the key issues that might be examined through a lens of social justice. A full life-span approach will be taken so as to cover several key current family policy trends.
