SW-706: Trauma Informed Interventions and Healing Practices

3 credit hours

This course serves as the foundation and framework for creating and applying healing strategies within the context of individual and systemic trauma. Students will develop an applied understanding of the four core tenets of a trauma informed system/organization (realization, recognition, response and re-traumatization avoidance) while exploring best practices focused on the healing principles of safety, transparency/trust, peer support, collaboration, voice and choice and cultural/historical/gender issues.
