This course incorporates a more expanded definition of trauma that is based upon an understanding of how trauma affects groups, communities and societies. From this theoretical perspective, students will recognize that the phenomenon of collective trauma may be a "normal response to abnormal situations" and, therefore, is not just a form of "pathology." Instead of examining trauma and appropriate intervention strategies within a Western theoretical and philosophical paradigm, this course will conduct an in-depth review of stress and trauma within the social and cultural contexts in which they have occurred, including the impact of historical racism on Aboriginal identity which has resulted in cultural loss. 2019/05/25-2019/06/02 Lecture Days to be Announced, Times to be Announced, Room to be Announced (more)...
