Description

This intermediate-level course provides a foundation for understanding the types of trauma children experience, including both acute and chronic traumatic events, and how trauma affects the child's affective, physiological, attentional, behavioral, and relational development and abilities. Participants will learn about the factors affecting a child's response to trauma, including intrapersonal factors, family and systemic factors, cumulative traumatic exposure, and cultural considerations. The course discusses posttraumatic play and reenactment and explores how children manifest their distress posttrauma. Several kinds of trauma are discussed and case vignettes are presented to illustrate the ways traumatic experiences may manifest in children. Children can be exposed to many different types of trauma. Child maltreatment includes emotional maltreatment, neglect, physical abuse, and sexual abuse. Traumas within the family environment include intimate partner violence and parental substance abuse. Children can also experience situational trauma, such as childhood traumatic grief, serious childhood medical illness, and homelessness.

The course also describes trauma related to bullying and school violence, community violence, world events (including natural disasters, terrorism and politically motivated violence), and immigration and resettlement, and includes discussions of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and Boston Marathon bombings. Trauma-informed care and treatments are detailed, such as psychological first aid, trauma systems therapy, child-parent psychotherapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, play and expressive therapies, and case management. This course is intended for social workers, mental health counselors, psychologists, marriage and family therapists, pediatric and behavioral health nurses, school personnel, and other healthcare providers working with trauma-exposed youth. The course may also be helpful to clinicians working with adult clients whose symptoms stem from childhood trauma.

Western Schools is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
