Child Abuse and the Law
General Description:
This seminar explores various topics relating to child abuse. Although by no means comprehensive, the seminar will permit students to explore certain issues in depth and write a paper on a topic of particular interest. We will read a variety of texts and watch a documentary on one family's struggle with the child welfare system. No one point of view is emphasized and students are encouraged to think critically about the current child welfare system and the various proposals to reform it.
