The goal of this course is to teach students the process of family and community empowerment with didactic and experiential coursework as well as practical community fieldwork. Students will meet as a class, one day a week. Students will choose a Detroit area field placement. The class is structured as follows: the first half of the class period will be devoted to class discussion of specific topics augmented by readings, experiential exercises, guest speakers, and videos; the second half of the class period will be devoted to discussions related to fieldwork. Students will be expected to discuss issues specific to their placement and to incorporate ideas from didactic materials with their field experiences.

The grade for PSYCH 319 is based on three components; the midterm paper, the final project, and class attendance and participation.
