This course informs students about the impact of trauma on human functioning and provides them with a basic conceptual framework and skills for counseling people who are suffering from trauma-related disorders. Students will learn to recognize the physical, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral symptoms of trauma-related stress reactions (e.g., post-traumatic stress disorder, moral injury) and traumatic brain injury and apply select counseling interventions to assist clients who are exhibiting those symptoms. Students will also learn to recognize the limits of their expertise in addressing trauma-related disorders and when and where to make appropriate referrals for specialized intervention services.
