Violence Against Women: Assessment and Intervention

Code:
INTR 1383

In this course, students learn theory and practical skills essential to assist women victims of violence. Students examine historical and social perspectives of violence against women; issues of power and authority within a feminist theoretical framework; different forms of violence against women, such as sexual violence and femicide; and women's varied experiences of violence (as impacted by race, class, sexual orientation, ability and age). Through a combination of case studies, literature and media analysis, group activities and discussion, practical demonstrations, role-plays, and community research students learn how to support women victims of violence, to assess women for risk of violence, to recommend personal safety plans, and to best advocate for appropriate and needed services.

Notes:

The minimum passing grade for this course is 60%.
