Course Description:
This course provides an overview of psychological trauma including history, biology, historical trauma, PTSD, ASD, complex trauma, attachment, development, population considerations, evaluation, assessment, treatment considerations and vicarious traumatization.

“In the United States, 61 percent of men and 51 percent of women report exposure to at least one lifetime traumatic event, and 90 percent of clients in public behavioral health care settings have experienced trauma. If trauma goes unaddressed, people with mental illnesses and addictions will have poor physical health outcomes and ignoring trauma can hinder recovery. To ensure the best possible health outcomes, all care — in all health settings — must address trauma in a safe and sensitive way.” Source- http://www.integration.samhsa.gov/clinical-practice/trauma
