Certificate Description

Every year across the globe, millions of individuals are affected by violence. In addition to the tremendous physical and emotional toll, violence has substantial medical, lost productivity, societal, and environmental costs. Young people and women are disproportionately affected by violence. This certificate program examines workplace violence, domestic (intimate partner) violence, elder abuse, child abuse, pediatric abusive head trauma, and sexual assault, gender violence, and rape.

Courses Included

Workplace violence is an increasing problem in organizations today and is especially challenging in the health care industry. Considered a human rights issue, workplace violence affects the dignity of millions of people worldwide and is a major source of inequality, discrimination, stigmatization, and workplace conflict. The consequences to organizations and employees are staggering and include negative financial, safety, and health-related outcomes.
Domestic (intimate partner) violence is an international health care and human rights issue affecting millions of people every day. Individuals and health care providers who understand the causes of violence, recognize the signs and symptoms of abuse, and are knowledgeable in screening and support strategies for victims are critical factors in the early treatment and prevention of this health care epidemic.
Older adults today are vibrant, independent, living longer, and in better health than their ancestors. However, as this growing population increases, so does the issue of caring for elderly individuals. Caregivers must often cope with stressful economic and personal burdens when caring for the elderly who pay the price for this stress and may be abused, exploited, or neglected.
Child abuse is a national and international issue that has serious long-term consequences for the child and the community. A social problem that has existed for thousands of years, child abuse in all its forms first became a topic of national interest in the 1960s with the advocacy of Henry Berge, founder of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Today, there is a system of laws in all 50 states that now define what constitutes abuse and neglect and who is mandated to report abuse.
The prevention of child maltreatment, particularly the reduction of abusive injuries and their consequences, is an important public health concern. Even when they do not result in death, serious traumatic brain injuries in children have profound lifetime consequences. The crime of pediatric abusive head trauma (PAHT) is a preventable and severe form of child abuse. In the United States, child abuse is the third leading cause of all head injuries, and its prevention and treatment present a challenge to health care providers.
Rape or sexual assault can happen to anyone, regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status. These forms of sexual violence are among the most underreported crimes in both the United States and the world due to the intensely difficult nature of the crimes. Understanding the various forms of sexual violence, the concept of consent, and the short- and long-term impacts of sexual assault on individuals, families, and communities is essential to preventing this form of violence.
