Students will learn about the emotional impact of victimization. The focus will be on victims of residential break and enter, children and trauma, victims of crime such as: those sexually assaulted, elders, and victims of hate crimes. There will be a special emphasis on the secondary victimization of friends, relatives, witnesses, first responders (police, firefighters, paramedics), health care professionals, childcare and social service workers, and the clergy.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.
