PSY 422
Practical Implications of Trauma-Informed Approaches
3 credits

Using a trauma-informed approach means using knowledge of trauma and recovery to design and deliver services. What does that actually mean for your daily work?  How does it affect the operation of a program? In this course, we will discuss what is unique about a trauma-informed approach and how it is implemented in organizations in the community. This course also provides an opportunity to apply an understanding of trauma-informed approaches to a community organization through experiential learning (e.g., service-learning).
