About the program

  • Dates of Courses: August 6 - August 17, 2018 (dates subject to slight change)
  • Housing: Double- and single-occupancy studio apartments to be arranged by staff
  • Passport: Must be valid at date of entry; must have at least 1 blank page
  • Note for 16-month students: Students in the 16-month program are unable to be absent from field or class in the summer session; given the compressed nature of the program there is insufficient time available to make up missed field hours. 16-month students can, however, take a Jterm global course the winter of their second year, when they are on the same schedule as the two year program.

This course has been developed specifically to prepare MSW students for trauma-informed evidenced-based practice.  The curriculum is based on twelve guiding core concepts developed by an expert consensus panel of trauma experts in association with the National Child Traumatic Stress Network.  It proceeds from a problem-based learning approach; new to many social work educators, in which in-depth case studies that reflect a distillation of the best evidence about the impact of trauma are presented to respond to the expressed desire of student’s to experience “real” cases as they actually unfold in practice.
