Trauma, Trauma-Informed Care, Recovery & Resilience

SPH SB 832

Exposure to trauma (e.g., interpersonal violence, military-related, disasters) is pervasive. This course will provide students the opportunity to understand the public health impact of trauma. Students will strengthen their skills through critical analysis of published research on trauma, trauma-informed approaches, treatment, recovery and resilience-building. The first part of the course is devoted to mastering context and content of trauma, and in learning and applying key frameworks and skills involved in trauma informed care. During the second half of the course, the focus turns to recovery from trauma and the role of resilience in prevention and mental health promotion. Students will apply their skills to create a strategic plan for a topic related to existing trauma-informed resilience-building approaches.
