CPSY 623 - Trauma and Crisis Counseling

Unit(s): 3

The course is designed to provide students with knowledge of and competencies in trauma and crisis counseling in urban and multicultural contexts. We specifically investigate ecological, developmental, and social variables that impact ethnic minority and low-income communities and their experience of trauma. Trauma associated with racism, poverty, violence, immigration, refugee status, homelessness, abuse, death, injury, health, and crime (as well as other conditions and issues) will be explored. Cultural, psychological, social, and biological differences in the experiences of trauma will be addressed. Culturally relevant intervention models and strategies will be discussed for various forms of crisis and trauma. These include the use of cultural-ecological crisis assessment and intervention models for school and community-based settings.
