Consider the following statement: Dysfunctional families create dysfunctional children.
This situation can lead to an intergenerational cycle of dysfunction as the children of dysfunctional families become adults. Finding ways to improve the maturity and emotional functioning of adolescents and young adults before they marry and have children is an important goal.
Develop a prevention program for reducing codependency in adolescents and young adults.
Write a 1,400- to 1,750-word paper discussing specific interventions you would implement to teach youth and young adults to function better interpersonally and as a parent.
Explain how these interventions would contribute to reducing the toxic side of codependency.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
