Abuse, Neglect and the Psychological Dimensions of Intimate Violence
This course has evolved from a child abuse and neglect course to a course covering all forms of intimate violence across the life span. During the semester, we will address issues related to child abuse and neglect (including physical, sexual, and emotional maltreatment), animal abuse, dating violence, domestic violence, and the abuse of elderly individuals. We will examine theory and research addressing various forms of maltreatment and will incorporate developmental, historical, and cross-cultural perspectives whenever possible.
