Emphasis in Traumatic Stress Psychology

This emphasis—the only such of its kind in the United States—offers students specialized knowledge and training to provide therapy and assessment services for individuals with symptoms of traumatic stress, including people who have experienced combat, disasters, accidents or life-threatening illness, or interpersonal violence. Students learn the practice skills to provide these individuals with research-supported clinical services and the support they need to improve their psychological, physical, social, and vocational functioning. An understanding of the broader structural and systemic factors that impact survivors’ well-being is emphasized.
