Trauma-informed Responses to Violence - SCWK6951

Year - 2020

The trauma model is increasingly recognized as a useful approach to understanding the mental health impacts of interpersonal violence. The trauma model provides a potential bridge that enables mental health and social justice perspectives to be combined in responses to interpersonal trauma. The trauma model can also move beyond the harm suffered by individuals to considerations of community and trans-generational trauma, for example, as suffered by Indigenous Australians through experiences of murder, dispossession and child removal. This UOS provides students with a framework for responding to individual and community trauma.
