Learning Center Experience
Families come in all forms and sizes and are much more than a group of
individuals linked together by birth. The needs and dynamics of every family
are unique to its members. Family wellness and family support can help foster
security and comfort during difficult times. This month the Center for
Public Service and College of Public Service would
like to highlight the importance of family and encourage a better understanding
of family and diversity.

Educating kids and empowering others to improve their lives, especially for the sake of their families, has always been a passion for human services graduate Arnez Cooper. She is responsible for the case management of 36 families through site visits, developing and overseeing parenting groups, providing ongoing support planning, and helping with everyday needs such as housing and food.
“I still pinch myself that I had the nerve to pick myself up

The U.S. Census defines a family as "a group of two persons or more (one of whom is a householder) related by birth, marriage or adoption and residing together" (U.S. Bureau of the Census, 1998c). Over the past 5 years, however, we have seen major shifts in this ideal as family has become a term stretched to include a myriad of diversities.
Our society has become very concerned with the idea of wellness. A simple search on the Internet yields a plethora of websites dedicated to improving our wellness (including one for our pets!).

Family trauma can come in a variety of forms. A natural disaster, loss of a loved one to war, and domestic violence are just a few examples—and the effects of each are different.
