May 16 to May 29, 2011:
Course Title: “Responding to Interpersonal, Intercultural and Historical Violence”
Led by: Drs. Lara Foley and Joanne L. Davis
This course was offered by the University of Tulsa Institute of Trauma, Abuse, and Neglect (TITAN) and cross-listed with Psychology, Sociology, and Women’s and Gender Studies. The course topics addressed experiences of interpersonal violence, individual and community experiences of war and displacements, and the historical violence of the slave trade in Ghana. Classroom instruction, field visits, and service projects that provided students with hands on experience with the local culture were offered.
TITAN is planning to return to Ghana and provide an additional course during Summer 2013.
A warm welcome upon arrival in Accra, Ghana.
TITAN spent one day of community service at a school, where they painted the outside and inside of classrooms.
