Trauma-informed care — ensuring that services provided to system-involved youth acknowledge the many ways in which trauma affects health and well-being — cannot be understated. This 6-hour online course will consider the nature, forms, and impact of trauma experienced during childhood on adolescent adjustment and the many ways in which traumatic experiences can set a platform for problem behavior, delinquency, and justice involvement during adolescence. This course also will present current approaches to trauma-informed service delivery, with a focus on evidence-based interventions for justice-involved adolescents.
This is an elective course in the Rutgers Juvenile Justice and Youth Development Certificate Program.
