Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Trauma-Informed Educational Practices

The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Trauma-Informed Educational Practices will build on fundamental knowledge and skills related to teaching and learning with a focus on specific trauma-informed educational practices. This focus will extend across various educational settings and populations. Throughout this program, you will explore how trauma is realized throughout school settings and examine related educational strategies involved in mitigating trauma. Further, you will garner insight as to the practices needed to meet students "where they are at" and what it means to have a trauma-sensitive environment. This program offers an instructional approach to understanding trauma, rather than a clinical or psychological approach. Finally, you will explore the fundamentals of a trauma-informed approach to education, how trauma manifests in different populations, specific trauma-informed strategies for the classroom, and strengthening resilience among both students and educators.
