HLTH 389V: An International Perspective on Domestic and Sexual Violence is a three credit, interdisciplinary 10-day study abroad course where students travel to Rome and Sicily from March 15, 2014 to March 23, 2014 to learn about the issues surrounding domestic and sexual violence. Students will learn about the dynamics of domestic violence including the power and control wheel, the cycle of violence and safety planning. Students will be expected to draw comparisons of the response to domestic violence between Rome, Sicily and the United States.
