Social Work | Selected topics in Social Work: Child Sexual Abuse and Associated Issues
S300 | 6740 | Jessica Hersch


This social work course examines both research studies and service
application in the field of sexual abuse, neglect, and family
violence.  Recent findings from empirical studies are reviewed, and
then compared to the beliefs and practices of mental health and legal
systems designed to intervene in abuse cases.  Many examples are drawn
from actual cases of child sexual abuse.  Students are encouraged to
develop the ability to use critical thinking when reviewing theories
and services in the field of child sexual abuse and family violence.
