✽ CSL 2054 - Trauma Informed Care for Diverse Populations

1.0 Credits
This class presents a treatment framework that involves understanding, recognizing and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. The clinical shift is from “what’s wrong with you” to “what happened to you.” The need to address trauma is increasingly viewed as an important component of effective behavioral health service delivery. This class will introduce students to the concept of trauma‐informed care, and define ways in which a traditional treatment setting can be modified to increase an individual’s sense of safety within this setting. Students will learn how to incorporate trauma‐informed practices into substance use disorder treatment with diverse populations, such as military veterans, gender specific, people with co‐occurring disorders, persons involved in the criminal justice system, etc. This class also seeks to enhance the ability of students to offer treatment services in a manner that respects gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, cultural, familial, systemic and socioeconomic diversity.
