PSYC 460 - Rituals in Families

This course provides an overview of the function of rituals as well as a model of assessment. Daily events such as tucking a toddler into bed, holiday celebrations, family traditions, and cultural/religious rites of passage are highlighted. The power of these rituals to create and shape reality, express values and emotions, facilitate transitions, and promote healing is demonstrated through lecture, the use of popular movies, and class participation.
