SOSC 320 - ILLNESS AND LOSS: CHILDREN ADOLESCENT & YOUTH
Illness and Loss: Children, Adolescents, and Youth will examine the complex topic of the impact of illness, crisis, and bereavement in the lives of children, adolescents, and young adults. The course is interdisciplinary drawing on the lenses of developmental psychology, social sciences, health care professions, and the humanities to address both how children, adolescents and youth understand, experience, a and cope with life-altering illness and loss and how professionals and families can support and provide care for young people as they undergo physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual challenges. Students will explore the class theme through readings in key texts, articles and a/v material, experiential activities, field trips, guest speakers, and group work. The course will be web-enhanced. Students will process and share their learning through a multi-draft research paper, an oral report, and a regularly maintained reflection journal which will culminate in a reflective essay. The course is open to all interested students and is particularly recommended for students in health fields, psychology, social work, teacher education and other helping professions. It satisfies the Gen Ed Topics in Social Sciences category.
