The following student learning outcomes will be added to my Substance Use and Abuse Course Starting Fall 2021:
Student Learning Outcomes
1. Apply Intersectionality as a tool for understanding “case studies” of poverty and addiction (including memoirs and videoclips) at individual and family level
2. Analyze cultural representations for depictions of poverty and addiction with attention to race, class, gender, sexuality as used to portray poverty and addiction at individual, family, and community levels
3. Analyze patterns of poverty and addiction with attention to social and environmental determinants in low income families and communities.
4. Differentiate coping strategies for poverty and other types of stress and describe the ramifications of maladaptive coping, especially substance use and abuse.
5. Analyze the war on drugs, drugs and substance abuse in the criminal justice system, including mass incarceration (school to prison pipeline), with emphasis on poverty and addiction as preventable social adversity.
I found the following resource that we were provided very helpful but will use other resources as well.
