CHD 752 Trauma Assessment/Treatment 3 sem. hrs.
This course focuses on understanding how traumatic (physical and sexual abuse, rape, family violence, war and terrorism, refugee, etc.) experiences affect adults and children; and on learning how to recognize, assess and intervene with survivors. The course will consider appropriate counseling strategies for early intervention as well as best practices in the clinical management and treatment of individuals with chronic trauma experiences. The impact of trauma on biopsychosocial functioning will be considered in relation to the limitations of existing DSM diagnoses and treatment protocols, and research directions in traumatology and in evolving integrative treatment approaches will be considered.
