Overall aims and purpose

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS MODULE IS DELIVERED THROUGH THE MEDIUM OF WELSH AND IN ENGLISH AS OF 15/16

Nod y modiwl yma fydd i archwilio’r perthynas cymhleth rhwng plant, teuluoedd a’r gymdeithas. Mi fydd pynciau yn cynnwys ffactorau risg ac amddiffynnol sy’n gysylltiedig â datblygiad a lles plant, gan gynnwys y taflwybrau (trajectories) fwyaf cyffredin sy’n gysylltiedig gyda’r ffactorau yma.

Mi fydd y modiwl yn edrych ar sut mae ymyrraethau sy'n cael eu ysgrifennu yn y DU/UD yn cael eu haddasu ar gyfer gwledydd tlawd iawn (e.e. Jamaica). Yn ogystal, mae’r modiwl yn ceisio cyflwyno rhai o’r polisïau ac ymyriadau sydd eisoes wedi cael eu gweithredu i geisio gwella lefelau lles a datblygiad plant ifanc. Mi fydd y modiwl yn trafod y gwahanol sialensiau sydd yn cael eu gwynebu wrth i’r ymyriadau cael eu gweithredu yn y maes (ymchwil yn y byd go-wir).
