Students will demonstrate knowledge and understanding of reporting requirements, treatment interventions, repressed memory controversy, working within the criminal justice system and the tenets of the Children's Justice Act addressing investigation, prosecution, and judicial handling of abuse and neglect cases. Areas of focus involve various forms of each category including indicators for the range of abuses on an international scale with child labor, slavery, and child prostitution issues."
