HEA 3510 HEALTH AND SOCIAL WELFARE POLICY AND PROGRAM: ANALYSIS FOR HUMAN SERVICES

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course will review and assess health and social welfare policies and programs in order to provide the foundation for applied social welfare policy analysis and intervention. The course will define and utilize multiple analytical frameworks to examine the interactive nature of organizational, political, judicial, and economic principles on health and social welfare policy. The diversity of client populations and their respective needs will be considered as part of an overview of historic and current health and social welfare policies, programs and intervention strategies.

HEA 3507 Trauma Informed Practice

HEA 3507 Trauma Informed Practice

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.
