This unit is designed to introduce students to the broad range of theories underpinning an understanding of families and households, and to apply that theoretical understanding by using an ecological perspective to consider a number of elements of family/household life. Concepts of 'family' and 'household' are examined and trends, changes and patterns in family composition and behaviour are reviewed. Examples of elements of family life to be considered: mate selection; marriage; socialisation of children, leisure in families; divorce and repartnering; families and work. The role of the family/household as a setting for public health will be explored within each of the elements of study.
