Course Introduction:
In the Asian-American family, the cultural differences between the younger generation and the older generation have led to differences in their core values; consequently, conflicts in communication arise.  This course, “Healthy Dialogue”, helps parents, youth and youth workers to understand their responsibilities and roles, and provides two-way boundaries and communication guidelines between youth workers and parents, youth and parents as well.
