Course Project: Children exposed to risk, stress or trauma...violence/fear (in families and the neighborhood)
The topic which I would like to explore for this course project is violence and fear in families. This is not a topic I have first hand experience with but one I am interested in studying. My interest in this topic is purely one of curiosity from observations of some of the children I have taught and currently serve at my facility. There are so many factors that can and do influence a child's identity including violence and fear but so many people try to these two to control others and create a sense of power. I would like to research the direct influence that violence and fear in the family have on the young child's development. I am still working on specific research questions for this topic but I do value input from my colleagues and look forward to hearing from you.
