It feels so important that we at BUP understand the role we play for victims of violence, we can ask questions and discover the violence. The children will not tell us if we do not ask them and they can't wait. We must act; the web course has helped us in this work

The course is an excellent tool for acquiring an overall knowledge of the subject. As a future sociologist, it is especially important to broaden one's understanding and definition of violence in order to deviate from stereotypical images. The course structure with different chapters is smooth and flexible.

So far, violence in close relationships has not been a natural part of sociology education and it has been appreciated to gain more understanding and knowledge of the area. It was very rewarding for participants to have the discussions during the group track.
