Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Health and Public Service

Trauma is a major issue in society that results in increased risk across a number of societal concerns. Trauma-informed care is a powerful framework that offers hope in addressing these issues. It provides a means to better recognize the symptoms of trauma, understand its impact, and develop the knowledge base and skills to address the needs of individuals with trauma histories. 

This certificate is interdisciplinary and can benefit a wide-range of professions interacting with individuals who have experienced trauma (for example, social work, rehabilitation, psychology majors, criminal justice personnel, healthcare professionals, educators and many other professional domains). It consists of four required courses across the domains of mental health, substance use, child welfare and family violence (total of 12 credit hours).
