The Child and Adolescent Development major provides undergraduate preparation for careers in a wide variety of settings with children which may expose you to situations in which a child may have experienced or be experiencing maltreatment. You are to choose one of the five approved films to watch and identify the type of abuse depicted in the film by using major points discussed in the related chapters of our text for example Chapters 6 (The Sexual Abuse of Children) and Chapter 7 (Incest: Familial Abuse).
In your paper answer the following:
1. Identify the type of abuse depicted in the film (use the book to discuss someone would know which type it is)
2. identify the type of offender depicted in the film (what makes him an offender, signs and red flags about this offender that should be monitored use book and other references).
3.Identify and discuss the symptoms of abuse that the victim exhibits.
4.Discuss the roles and responsibilities of the adults around victim and offender, and the current reporting requirements for the type of abuse.
5.Research peer reviewed journals to discuss the impact of the type abuse you have identified as well as treatment/interventions recommended to mitigate the impact of abuse.
Through this exercise, students will develop a better understanding of how to recognize the various forms of maltreatment.
