PADM 230 Public Policy and Domestic Violence

This course will examine the specific problem of adult domestic violence from a public policy perspective. The nature, extent, dynamics and impacts of violence in intimate relationships will be analyzed in light of specific government responses to the problem. Executive, legislative and judicial (criminal and civil) policies will be explored from historical and political perspectives. Specific agency policies (police, family court, district attorney, probation, corrections, social services, emergency room/health care, mental health, etc.) will be analyzed in terms of their effectiveness in stopping the violence and contributing to a coordinated, community response.
