Building Student Capacity
Opportunities for Students:
*Specialized coursework *Training in an evidence based trauma treatment (EBTT) *Field practicum with EBTT practice experience
Social work students have the opportunity, in over sixty locations across the country, to enroll in one of the National Center’s Core Concepts courses taught by trained faculty. The two courses offered are: Core Concepts of Child and Adolescent Trauma; and Trauma Informed Child Welfare Practice. Both courses employ a problem based learning approach used with five in-depth case studies that reflects trauma’s impact on children of every developmental age period. This approach allows students to experience “real” cases as they actually unfold in practice. See the map below to find out where the courses are offered.
This course was extremely helpful in providing a foundation for trauma-focused work. Possibly th emost important lesson from the class was how useful it is to educate oneself in trauma as a way to employ self-care and consequently, best practice. - Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College student
Students attending one of the National Center’s twelve partner schools where the “upstream model” has been implemented receive, in addition to the course,: a) two days of intensive training in a specific evidence based trauma treatment (EBTT) prior to starting their field placement; and b) a trauma-informed field practicum at a community mental health (MH) agency where they are supervised by a field instructor trained in an EBTT.
