NURS 4962 Adolescent Development and Health Care (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course is designed to provide a broad theoretical approach to the study of adolescent growth and development as a basis from which to examine major health concerns and implications for interventions. Selected current health issues to be included are: sexuality; teenage pregnancy and parenting; eating disorders; substance abuse; depression and suicide; self-destructive behaviors; and violence. Various support/intervention services available for treatment will be explored. The use of music, poetry, literature, and the cinema for metaphoric meaning will enhance understanding of the adolescent experience.
