COUN 8641 - Individual Crisis, Trauma, and Recovery♦


(5 cr.) With an emphasis on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), dissociative identity disorder (DID), and vicarious trauma, this course is designed to address the mental health needs of individuals who are traumatized by violence, neglect, natural disasters, emotional abuse, and man-made disasters. Students will gain both practical and empirical information about how trauma impacts the whole person, how to make assessments on trauma victims, and how to treat trauma-related disorders. In addition, the course focuses on providing support for first-line responders, such as mental health providers, military personnel, medical personnel, police and fire personnel, victim advocates, and family members who care for traumatized people.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
