SWK 3322 - INTRODUCTION TO TRAUMA IN SOCIAL WORK


Introduces students to the issue of trauma and trauma treatment at both an individual and systems level.  Emphasis is placed upon the variety of variables which both contribute to and are impacted by trauma.  Analysis of key factors such as psychobiology, central nervous system involvement, impact and implication on intra psychic functioning, attachment and bonding, as well exploration and discussion around dynamics such as hyper vigilance, hyper arousal, re-enactment, repetition compulsion, flashbacks, intrusive thoughts, and disassociation will be explored at length.  Students will be trained in an “iinjury” model of assessment and treatment, with an emphasis on expanding the ability to think critically relative to these core functions, and the range of evidenced based interventions be introduced, from which students will learn to integrate the various models and apply theory to practice.  The issue of ethics in treatment will be interwoven throughout, as well as the principle and practice of self-care for the worker.

Prerequisites & Notes: SWK 1800 and 45 earned credits.

Credits: 3 cr.
