PSY 326 - Developmental Trauma


Developmental trauma captures the spectrum of reality for children exposed to chronic interpersonal trauma that results from having developed in the context of ongoing danger, maltreatment and/or inadequate care giving. Students will learn to identify developmental trauma and understand societal issues that create the context for inadvertently fostering trauma. Attention will be paid to the impact of developmental trauma to the ecological life systems of children into adulthood, including resilience and paths to recovery.
