PS 2990 - Youth At Risk


What makes an at‐risk‐child become a juvenile delinquent versus a solid citizen? This class looks at developmental, environmental, social and physical/health issues that impact the life of children and influence the direction in which their lives may go. We will discuss relevant political issues, resiliency, education, and medical practices. We will look deeply into the corrections and social services agencies to analyze what is being done as well as what should be or should not be done to change things. The course will challenge your beliefs, ignite your curiosity, and with any luck at all, get you motivated to make a change in someone’s life. (4 credits)
