Trauma & Resilience Programs

Trauma & Resilience Programs

Created to address the growing demands on professionals who work directly with people affected by traumatic experiences, the new programs will empower them to address real-world challenges they face while working with people in crisis. CSP is offering two options for graduate students: A 15-credit graduate certificate that includes five courses that can be completed in 10 months, and a Masters degree with an emphasis in human service trauma, resilience, and self-care that includes 30 credits of coursework completed over 22 months. 

These programs are modeled after CSP’s existing Trauma & Resilience in K-12 Education graduate certificate offering. The extended focus of the new program will provide relevant, and timely knowledge through coursework focused on:

  • The foundations of trauma disorders and stressor-related disorders
  • The impact of childhood trauma on the developing brain
  • Forensic behavioral health aspects of trauma
  • The impact of trauma on family systems
  • Trauma-informed practice, self-care, and resilience strategies

Supporting those who have faced traumatic circumstances is my life mission. I realized that it is the #1 unaddressed public health threat – and I needed to do my part to stop it. The T&R degree at CSP allows those in a school setting to strengthen their skill set to best serve all students, enhance personal, professional, and student resilience, and promotes longevity as a career educator.
