This third module was about working with families. It identified appropriate and inappropriate communication methods and interaction styles.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
