Description

Course Format

Hybrid: Recorded video online activity and reading-based online activity.


This is a required course in the Online Trauma-Informed Organization Certificate Program: Basics for All Staff that was created by the University at Buffalo School of Social Work’s Institute on Trauma and Trauma-Informed Care (ITTIC).

This course provides foundational information regarding implementation of a trauma-informed approach in organizations and systems. Organizations and systems become "trauma-informed" by incorporating in all aspects of service delivery an understanding of and responsiveness to the prevalence, nature, and impact of trauma, as well as by implementing intentional policies, protocols, and procedures that actively and deliberately resist re-traumatization. Adopting a trauma-informed approach in organizations and service systems creates a supportive, affirming, and therapeutic environment for individuals who have experienced trauma as well as for staff. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain what an organization/system being "trauma-informed" means at a high level;
  • Identify "themes" that are commonly noticed within organizations/systems that may re-traumatize/harm individuals who are seeking assistance as well as staff;
  • Discuss potential effects of trauma exposure (primary and/or secondary/vicarious) on service individuals, service providers, organizations, and systems of care;
  • Develop strategies to assess for and implement a trauma-informed approach with consideration for the core values/principles of a trauma-informed approach.

Target Audience:  This course is appropriate for social workers and all levels of human service staff that seek foundational information on trauma and a Trauma-Informed approach.
