Certificate in Trauma-Informed Care
The Certificate in Trauma-Informed Care will expose graduate students in several helping professions to the theory and practice of trauma-related service delivery. All students participating in the certificate program will complete 15 academic credits related to trauma theory and practice. Two courses will constitute the core curricular requirements with 9 remaining credits from approved electives. Four departments are participating in this interdisciplinary certificate program—social work, educational psychology, nursing and occupational therapy—and accordingly, the program curriculum will consist of courses offered via multiple campus departments. The Certificate in Trauma-Informed Care is a multidisciplinary program that integrates knowledge from the social, behavioral, and health sciences. The primary goal of the program is to train graduate students from the helping professions in specialized knowledge and skills related to psychological trauma.
