Brief Explanation re:
  1. Why you are taking this course: I intern with a program that helps victims of domestic abuse, and we occasionally deal with children victims. I wanted to take this course to learn about children as victims, and what can be done to help them.
  2. What you hope to gain from the course: A greater understanding of the world outside my current perspective, and be able to apply this new knowledge to my current and future work settings.

Note: This course will deal with difficult, often disturbing content. As a result, you are requested to carefully monitor your posts to the course wiki. DO NOT use the course wiki to disclose any knowledge you may have re. an incidence of abuse. Such disclosures should be made to your local Child Protective Services, or police department. If you would like to discuss a possible/actual incidence of child abuse, please call the ChildHelp Hotline at 1-800-4-A-CHILD
