Brief Explanation re:
  1. Why you are taking this course: I work in a foster care residential home and have a huge interest in working with these kids as my career. This class seemed very fitting with my experiences thus far. It is also a requirement for my major :)
  2. What you hope to gain from the course: A better understanding of child maltreatment because I am going into the social work field and working with abused and neglected children and also to work on my writing skills.
