This course explores the phenomenon and social problem of family violence with both macro- and micro-theory explanations and an in-depth literature review. Students will demonstrate an understanding of assessment strategies, consequences, and contributing factors of family violence across socio-economic strata and the full range of diverse populations experiencing family violence. Attention is focused on professional and social responses that include clinical interventions, educational initiatives within schools, and responses to the disclosure of family violence in agency and private settings. Skills to develop a human services approach to preventing family violence are enhanced in this course; students are required to outline their own personal and professional roles in the movement to end family violence.
