PSY 669 Trauma in Diverse Populations (3)
Students are introduced to foundational and science-informed principles in
trauma psychology as they are contextualized by culture. Attention is directed
to an examination of multicultural competence, trauma risk reduction, and
trauma intervention. The course will survey interpersonal trauma (including
child abuse and partner and spousal abuse) as well as natural disasters and
medical trauma. This course satisfies the BBS requirement for course work in
spousal or partner abuse assessment, detection, and intervention.
