book: Applied Human Behavior in the Social Environment 

  • Chapter 14, “Family Influences on Human Behavior.”      
    • This chapter provides a description of the five stages of  family life cycle, identifies the five factors common to successful  marital relationships, and identifies the diversity in family  structures. From this chapter, you gain an understanding of the types of  influences on family formation by family of origin as well as an  understanding of transitions in family cycles.

Think about your understanding of the influence of family on human  development. Explore factors that may (either positively or negatively)  impact healthy family development. Examples may include death, divorce,  parental absences (such as deployments or incarceration), blended  families, and the list goes on.

Select one fact that impacts families and explain at least two ways  the factor affects human development. Use evidence from the literature  to support your post.

Complete your initial post by Thursday of this unit.
