Drawing from the fields of public health, social work, psychology, and law, students will learn about many of the social, emotional and health issues that impact today’s youth, with a focus on mental health, dating relationships, and substance abuse (alcohol and other drugs). Students in the course will learn how to design and implement innovative strategies to affect positive change in the lives of Brookline youth. Students will learn group facilitation skills and gain experience in public speaking through presentations to parent groups, health classes, and public hearings.
