IHHS 411 (3 credits) – Violence Across the Lifespan: Contexts, Causes, Changes

Course Description:

This web-based interprofessional course provides a topic-focused overview of violence and abuse across the lifespan, with particular attention to building knowledge around epidemiology, dynamics, health effects, and an introduction to programs targeted to both intervention and prevention. The socio-ecological model will be used to examine social factors that contribute to violence and abuse, and that can be utilized in crafting prevention-focused interventions. Learners will progress through the course in interprofessional collaborative teams that will serve as models for a coordinated community response to violence and abuse.
