Introduction to Trauma Informed Care - SSW126

In SSW practice, it is not uncommon that trauma and the impacts of trauma are present in the lives of those that SSW`s support.  Social Service Work practice involves working marginalized individuals, families, groups, and communities within a variety of organizational and community contexts.  This course will introduce the student to the impacts of trauma on individuals, families, and communities and how to intervene with a trauma informed care approach.  This course will lay the foundation of trauma informed care and prepare the student to apply and expand on this knowledge in subsequent courses.
