Understanding Trauma: Dynamics, Impacts and Interventions- Meeting Online  

Through lecture, discussion, and group interaction, students will gain a greater understanding of what trauma is and how it affects people, including their behaviors, thought processes and feelings. The discussion will include viewing trauma in the short, intermediate, and long terms. Much of the generally available information on trauma is misleading and simply inaccurate, so this course will provide a concrete definition of trauma and its different levels (i.e. the trauma continuum). The course will look at the interventions, therapies, and support that are most likely to help persons impacted by trauma, and also the potential limitations and risks with those efforts. We'll address issues such as: symptom management versus healing, the role of diagnosis, and advanced topics of cultural and intergenerational trauma. One outcome of the course is for registrants to more fully understand what it means for a practice or an organization to be truly “trauma-informed."
