Course description

Written within the narrative of every community is a story of Violence. Violence has been a part of the human story since the story began. It seems that Violence is inherent to the human condition and, therefore, must be understood so that communities are in a position to construct contextually appropriate solutions, interventions, and education programs to meet the challenges and threats that Violence presents as communities move forward. This course will explore several key elements integral to the development of strategies to respond to the challenges that Violence presents in our working and living communities. As the title of this course suggests, students will be exploring content related to Domestic and Workplace Violence. Because the topic of Violence is immense, the study of Violence must be broken down into small units for students to explore properly, which this course does. Domestic and Workplace settings are often closely related, and each impacts the other regularly in many circumstances. Therefore, including Domestic settings and Workplace settings in the same exploration of Violence lends itself well to an insightful and meaningful experience.
