The Trauma-Informed Care certificate courses consider several social issues that intersect with trauma including violence in families, child welfare and policy, substance use and mental health. Through these courses, students will learn about topics related to the recognition of the impact of violence as shaped by the social location of vulnerable and oppressed groups, the dynamics of child abuse and neglect, family structures, support systems and methods of intervention, risk of unaddressed traumatic experiences and its implications for mental health across the lifespan, and the characteristics of various life traumas and the social, psychological and biological impact that may be associated with substance use.
Through completion of the Trauma-Informed Care certificate, students will have increased knowledge and skills needed to interact effectively and ethically with individuals who have experienced trauma.
