In this course, students examine the concepts of trauma and abuse in personal, practical and theoretical contexts. They investigate the difference between stress and trauma and are able to explain conditions leading to possible trauma. In addition, students will acquire a basic understanding of how trauma might affect brain development and how that may impact on child and adolescent development. Throughout the course, the students will be learning and practicing strategies and activities specifically recommended in trauma informed practice.
Students will also critically reflect on how to manage secondary trauma, and how to cope with the demands of a profession that deals with traumatized victims on a regular basis. Through case studies and reflective assignments, students strengthen their understanding of the cognitive foundations of trauma and abuse theory and the role of resiliency that will inform their work in the field.
