This three-credit elective course will prepare MSW students for trauma-informed evidence-based practice by enhancing students' empathic understanding of trauma from the child's perspective and learning how trauma influences the child's life. The course focus is on the impact of trauma on the child, adolescent, and family, and provides a foundation for assessment, crisis intervention, and intervention. The curriculum is based on twelve guiding core concepts about trauma and utilizes a problem-based learning approach, in which in-depth case studies about the impact of trauma are presented so that students experience "real" cases as they actually unfold in practice. The cases focus on child and adolescents, aged 18 months to 13 years, from a variety of ethnic and racial groups representing urban and rural environments, and illustrate a number of different trauma types, including interpersonal trauma such as physical, emotional, and sexual abuse; witness to both stranger and domestic violence; and disasters. The Problem-Based Learning approach used in this course involves students in active, collaborative, and team-orientated self-directed learning.
The application for the January 2019 program is closed as of November 2, 2018.
