Trauma: Psychological Response and Recovery

Description:
This course examines the psychological and biological consequences of trauma by integrating theoretical, research, and clinical material from several disciplines. Students become familiar with the prevailing theoretical models in the field; with common features of the aftermath of different forms of trauma; with the neurobiological consequences of trauma; and with the methods of treatment that have evolved from the field's expanding empirical base. Developmental issues are given special consideration with a particular focus on childhood abuse. The course also focuses on historical and current sociocultural issues that comprise the context of trauma and its aftermath, both personal and collective.
