Center for Catholic Education
Schools today are challenged to meet the mental health concerns of students due to an emphasis on academic testing and a lack of communication within schools to identify and treat the needs of the students. The needs of the student travel beyond the classroom into the non-academic barriers to learning. The University of Dayton’s Urban Child Development Resource Center (UCDRC), works in five local schools in the Dayton area and strives to help students cope with these non-academic barriers to learning. This study focuses on three of the Seven Themes of Catholic Social Teaching as stated by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops: Call to Family, Community, and Participation; Option for the Poor and Vulnerable Life and Dignity of the Human Person; and how UCDRC implements these three themes into its program.
