Section Description

This course will provide students with the theoretical foundation and conceptual frameworks that relate to building resilience for children, youth and families who have experienced trauma and adversity. This fully online course aims to help in-service and pre-service professionals in child welfare, health/mental health, and schools gain a common language and knowledge base that will support the use of collaborative, family engaged, & trauma responsive practice. Specifically it will introduce students to core concepts related to trauma, resiliency, attachment, child development, family systems, and trauma-responsive & evidence informed practices. Students will leave this course with the skills necessary to put on a “trauma lens” when engaging with families and communities.


Grades are based on attendance, engagement with peers online, weekly assignments and a final paper/project.
