Family life education is relevant across the lifespan, is inclusive of all types of families, and is designed to meet the needs of the target audience (Arcus, Schvaneveldt, & Moss, 1993).
In regard to diverse audiences, program content must be culturally appropriate in order to be effective. Family life educators must determine the appropriate scope of their program and establish the relevance, or applicability, to their audience (NCFR, 2010b).

You walk into your office and you hear co-workers talking about a recent situation where the police arrested and killed a young African American man. Your team is really divided on this
You breathe a sigh of relief when the conversation ends, and everyone goes back to work. Soon after, your manager comes to you issue. There are some individuals who believe that the police are corrupt and using racial profiling to identify and harm citizens based on their race.

Journal 3: Challenges in Relationships – examine a specific relationship challenge you are now or have faced in a relationship with a friend/family member/romantic partner.
Three theories or concepts for analysis**
2 single spaced pages in length
The description section should be no more than 1 page in length
Use only concepts/theories from Chapter 10 for this entry
Each entry MUST be organized exactly as outlined below:
Context: Type the context at the top of this section (you will write the context of the interaction – where and when it occurred.) If you are unsure of what we mean by context of interpersonal interactions, read about it online and in the text. Remember, we use theory to explain, not general terms. For the Challenges Entry, your incident will focus on just one challenge from the following: jealousy, termination of a relationship, the impact of distance on a relationship, or deception. See the textbook and online lessons for information about how theories and concepts help us understand challenges in important relationships.
Interaction: Here, write the actual event, giving enough detail of what occurred so the analysis will be easily understood. Most people find it easier to write in a narrative form rather than a dialogue form, but it is your choice. The “Description” portion is about ½ page in length.
Concept/Theory: Begin by writing the name of the theory or concept (USE CAPS AND bold face so it is obvious to me) and write a 1 or 2 sentence explanation of the theory or concept, so it is clear you know what the theory or concept means. The theory or concept you choose should come directly from the chapter applying to the lesson. So, for the conflict journal, the theories and concepts you use to analyze your experience should come from the chapter dealing with conflict.
Application: Now, APPLY the theory or concept to the event you have described above. In this area you will explain why this theory or concept helps us to understand the interaction YOU PROVIDED IN THE “Description.”
NOTE: Short entries will lose points
***NO FLUFF – I want theory application.
