Education with an Emphasis in Trauma and Resilience in Educational Settings (MA)

More than 25 percent of American youth experience a serious traumatic event by age 16 and many suffer multiple and repeated traumas - and these experiences affect learning. This program is designed to help educators develop a trauma-informed care approach and, in turn, help students to overcome barriers to learning by developing responses to trauma and resiliency skills necessary to thrive in the classroom and in life.  This program does not lead to licensure.
