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.
