We have offered this course in prior years and feel that it is current regarding the topics which the author presents. The topics discussed are appropriate in today’s political and cultural environment.
The author states that 95% of domestic violence victims are female, and though she generally uses the female gender in reference to victims of domestic abuse, her approach is not meant to be sexist, and does not intend to minimize male victims of domestic abuse.

- The psychological reasons for domestic violence
- Preventive measures for early intervention
- The first steps to getting out of a violent domestic situation
