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 Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Although trauma treatment approaches will be considered, this class will not teach how to intervene using trauma specific treatment.
