Additional Course Details: 

This course introduces students to the core concepts that inform evidence-based assessment and intervention for traumatized children, adolescents, adults and their families in school settings. Strength-based practice is highlighted with a focus on the identification of protective and promotive factors that foster resiliency and post-traumatic growth. The course will introduce students to basic concepts (general theory and foundational knowledge) of trauma-informed practice in schools (including primary, secondary and post-secondary schools). Trauma is broadly defined, and includes children, adolescents and adults exposed to traumatic events including abuse and neglect, witnessing interpersonal crime (e.g. domestic violence), community violence, natural disasters, the traumas of war, and other traumatic events. The course highlights the role of development, culture and empirical evidence in trauma-specific assessment, referral and interventions with children, adolescents, and adults. It will address the level of functioning of primary caregiving environments and the capacities of school systems to facilitate restorative processes.
