PSY 459 - Ethno Cultural Aspects of Trauma

2018-2019 Catalog Year:

Trauma is a universal experience and training students to be competent in awareness of service delivery and policy decisions regarding trauma-affected populations is a critical need for the public health infrastructure. Given the changing demographics of the U.S. population, it has become increasingly important to understand how racial and ethnic identity influences the perception, onset and manifestation of trauma. This course Ethno-Cultural Aspects of Trauma will examine the psychological effects of racial and ethnic identity on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Students will look at the general ideas of identity development and its effects on PTSD symptomology from a psychological basis.
