Trauma and Interpersonal Violence

This specialization focuses on evidence-based practice approaches to trauma-informed care, such as cognitive behavioral therapy and child-adolescent trauma. Students gain an understanding of how traumatic attachments inform interpersonal relationships, self-perception, and emotional regulation throughout one’s life cycle. Moreover, recommended courses focus on acquiring advanced clinical skills in group work, narrative therapy, or concurrent problems such as addiction or mental illness that often result from traumatic stress.
