Interpersonal Violence

SOWK-360

This course will provide an overview of common forms of interpersonal violence (sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking, sexual harassment, human trafficking, and prostitution/pornography). Students analyze the interrelationships and connections between these and other social problems such as poverty, homelessness, crime, and substance abuse in the context of a sexist and racist culture. The impact of interpersonal violence on special populations (LGBT, the elderly, persons with disabilities) will be examined. Throughout the course students will have the opportunity to learn about community resources and agencies that work to combat this type of violence. Prerequisite: 210 or PSYC 171 or SOCL 125. Restricted to students with sophomore standing or higher.
