The neurophysiological and neurochemical changes which result from traumatic events will be addressed as well. Practical skills and therapeutic interventions needed in helping both children and adults cope in the aftermath of trauma will be discussed. Both traditional and creative arts treatment approaches will be explored. [Required for Trauma Response & Crisis Intervention Certificate Program]
