Trauma Intervention with Children and Adolescents
Office of Continuing Professional Education
Certificate Program in Trauma Treatment with Children and Adolescents
Spring 2016 to Fall 2016
The child and adolescent trauma intervention certificate program encompasses an integrated
focus on child development, neurobiology, attachment theory, and adverse life events (ALEs AKA
“Trauma”). The content is based on an evidence-grounded and narrative-based model applied to
assessment, diagnosis, and treatment methods targeting ALEs. The array of core concepts is linked
to the neuro-narrative model of child and adolescent trauma intervention developed by Dr. Munson.
The program prepares clinical social workers and other mental health professionals for work with
young people and their caregivers in recovering from ALEs. Theoretical content is enhanced
through case discussion and case presentations by Dr. Munson and program participants.
Social workers and other mental health professionals from a variety of clinical settings
encounter clients with histories of emotional abuse (referred to as “psychological abuse” in DSM-5
and referred to as “mental injury” in Maryland), physical abuse, sexual abuse, and other adverse life
events (trauma). This program provides the opportunity for practitioners from a range of agencies to
learn and analyze cases through a collaborative knowledge and skill building experience.
Class Dates and Times
Please note: Each participant is required to prepare a case analysis of a current client,
demonstrating integration of material presented during the program or an alternative assignment for
participants who are not working with clients.
