SW540, Section 001

The course will provide basic foundational knowledge from trauma research and practitioners’ expertise about the adverse cognitive, social-emotional, behavioral, and health outcomes on children and youth who experience trauma. The course will incorporate principles of interprofessional education, which focuses on helping students in the professions work collaboratively in generalist and specialty practice roles. Students will prepare for interprofessional and team-based approaches to prevention and intervention strategies in schools and others systems that serve children and families. A key focus will be applying new knowledge about trauma to better perceive trauma’s effects on children in the school setting and to develop strategies to assess their trauma-related needs, making use of teacher, social worker, and nurse roles.
