The descriptions and topics of this course vary from semester-to-semester as well as from instructor-to-instructor. Prerequisites: varies with the topic offered. GENDER AND SEXUALITY: This course involves a multifaceted and critical look at lived experiences of gender and sexuality. In the past 50 years, research on gender and sexuality has expanded beyond simple gender differences and similarities to include the social construction of gender, the gendered nature of social institutions, and the way that gender intersects with race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, social class, and other social categories. These will be themes throughout this course as we explore current issues related to media constructions of femininity and masculinity, sexual orientation, violence and trauma, transgender identities, and contemporary legal issues. TRAUMA: This course will provide an overview of psychological theory and research on trauma and traumatic stress. Specific topics covered include: responses to childhood trauma (especially sexual abuse), combat, natural disasters, and terrorism. We will consider developmental, cognitive, neuropsychological, clinical, and social/contextual theoretical frameworks as we explore these topics. The course is designed to acquaint you with some of the key issues, questions, and findings in the study of trauma and traumatic stress.
