The potential for violence resides in all of us and is an ever-growing and complex problem. Violent actions are often exacerbated by feelings of helplessness, fear, stress and the lack of effective coping strategies. Topics of discussion will include the many and varied aspects of violence, ranging from the subtle forms of manipulation, passive control, and intimidation to the more overtly aggressive forms of physical and sexual abuse. This course will explore the origins of violence; how it can be assessed through one’s writings and drawings, and some of the potential ramifications diagnosed as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Dissociative Identity Disorder. Effective strategies for building self-management skills in order to reduce stress levels and ultimately control violent outbursts will also be discussed. This course has a topic that is of universal concern so it is applicable to all subjects and grade levels inclusive of nurses, ELL educators, special education, physical education, applied sciences, art, music, and vocational areas.
