Effects of trauma on individuals, families, communities and societies are examined in relation to the human service profession. Effective, trauma-informed, evidence-based practices for human service professionals that promote recovery and healing are presented, along with coping skills, resilience and the importance of human service professional self-care. Research continues to point to the significance of traumatic experiences underlying a variety of mental health and behavioral issues, as well as fear based societal reactions to local and global events. It is imperative for human service professionals to understand trauma, its impact, and trauma-informed practices, in order to successfully formulate and effectively serve individuals and communities. Human service professionals working from micro to macro levels of practice will benefit from the information in this course.
