Gender Based Violence: From Theory to Action --- In this course we will examine gender based violence and the skills necessary to provide advocacy services to survivors. This course will introduce students to the roots of gender based violence, the social and cultural context in which it occurs, the mental and physical health impacts, justice and restitution frameworks, and will explore approaches to changing those structures in order to reduce or end it. Students will develop the skills to think critically about the local and global impact of gender based violence, how it intersects with other forms of oppression, and to develop an understanding of these issues that will be useful intellectually, personally, and professionally.
