SWRK - 460. Relationship Violence


3 credit(s)
This course is designed to give students a deeper understanding of the definitions of relationship violence, including the impact it has in society. Topics to be covered include adult domestic violence, physical and sexual child abuse, child neglect, rape, elder abuse, abuse in the gay and lesbian communities, and pet abuse. In addition, we will evaluate the various impacts of the violence across socioeconomic lines, and the role that gender plays in adult domestic violence. We will also review how social service systems, including social work, education, medical professionals, and the criminal justice system, play a part in the perpetuation of the various types of violence and how they are attempting to reduce the effects of this problem on our society. The course format includes lecture, presentations, discussion, reading assignments, papers, and examinations.
