This social work course introduces students to the characteristics and con-sequences of addictions and family violence. The subject matter allows students to become familiar with the negative effects of addictions on macro and micro systems. Students will be introduced to theories, models, myths, and misconceptions of family violence. For example, students will explore the social-psychological model of family violence. Students will examine the issues of matricide, patricide, filicide and fratricide. Also, the impact of emergent evidence from neuroscience on addictions and integration of neurobiology into social work practice will be examined. Finally, social work ethics, legal, medical and social perspectives involved in addictions and family violence are woven throughout the conversation.
