Childhood Victimization

Code: OLRN1497

Course description

Childhood victimization can have long-term negative impacts and shape the way a person views the world and those surrounding them. Students examine short and long-term effects of childhood victimization and gender related issues. Common myths are explored regarding children's symptoms and the effects of childhood victimization. Students gain an understanding of criminal and child welfare investigations, as well as relevant legislation and professional requirements related to reporting and documentation. Child development (ages, stages, capacities) and parental/guardian considerations are explored. Through a combination of lectures, case studies and discussions, students develop the interpersonal skills necessary to listen to and to interview children and their families. Emphasis is place on appropriate victim support and prevention recurrence.
