This course will examine both individual and systemic interventions for victims of trauma, abuse and violence. Research has shown that when trauma survivors' intimate relationships are strengthened, their ability to cope with the impacts of post- traumatic stress is also strengthened. Therefore, systemic and intrapsychic approaches are outlined in an integrated treatment approach to trauma therapy. A broad range of trauma experiences will be included, such as intimate violence, sexual abuse, natural disasters and witness to violence, war, political terror and vicarious trauma with its impact on the therapist. Prerequisites: COUN 0574 and COUN 0677.
