HSP 1020 - Introduction to Trauma Informed Care



Credits: 3

Description: Students will be introduced to the concept of Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) and how agencies and Human Services professionals can utilize this model to benefit clients. Students will describe and define what TIC is and ways in which a traditional treatment setting can be modified to increase the sense of safety experienced by clients and those who work with them. Students will learn how to incorporate trauma-informed practices into treatment with diverse populations, especially those with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Although trauma treatment approaches will be considered, this class will not teach how to intervene using trauma specific treatment.
