- Throughout the literature on trauma, various researchers have pointed out the necessity of incorporating trauma education into academic settings. The purpose of this project is to present a comprehensive overview of trauma counselling to undergraduate and graduate students. The twelve sections encompassing this project are the following: (1) What is trauma? (2) Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and symptomatology (3) Complex Trauma in adults and symptomatology (4) Complex Trauma in adolescents and children (5) Assessment of PTSD and Complex Trauma in adults, adolescents, and children (6) PTSD modes of treatments (7) Phases of treatment for PTSD and Complex Trauma (8) Culture and trauma (9) Historical Trauma (10) Intergenerational Trauma (11) Secondary Traumatic Stress, Vicarious Traumatization, and clinician self-care and (12) Coping strategies and Posttraumatic Growth. This project ideally will prepare future clinicians to effectively deal with trauma issues in their clinical work and, ultimately, to provide quality services to trauma survivors. --P.ii.
