S55 MPH 5360TPS: Youth Violence3.0 Units
Description:This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of adolescent violence-related injury. Violence among youth is a major public health problem that touches several disciplines including education, emergency medicine, law enforcement and legal systems, mental health, public health and social work. Topics to be covered include school violence, dating violence, suicide, and community violence. Students will also learn about conceptual and theoretical models describing the etiology of adolescent violence-related injury and gain an understanding of how such frameworks influence the development of prevention programs. The course includes a comprehensive overview of the many issues associated with youth violence both locally and across the United States. The course will cover the epidemiology of major violence-related injuries including disparities and social and cultural determinants, risk and resiliency factors. Course instruction will be supplemented by guest lecturers who will help illustrate various disciplinary and community perspectives on this issue. Students will work in concert with local organizations/research projects seeking to address this problem in the completion of major course assignments. Special attention is paid to how evidence-based programming must be used in concert with feasibility given community, culture and resource factors.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
