This course will introduce and review the theoretical and historical beginnings of
the concept of trauma, which includes the inclusion of posttraumatic stress
disorder (PTSD) as a diagnosable mental illness. It will highlight the other forms of
recognized traumatic events and stressors that have more recently been brought
to light. It will discuss various trauma reactions, effects of stressful events, as well
as the treatment of trauma. Resilience and transcendence of trauma will be
outlined, with an emphasis on the importance of self-care for clinicians and
helping professionals working in this area.
