McLean Hospital is pleased to offer this course aimed at dispelling long held misconceptions about assessing and treating emotional trauma. Experts from around the world will share the latest updates in the field, including delivering care in low-resource settings and exploring special populations such as the unique experiences of refugees and displaced persons.

About Trauma

When a strong emotional response to an extremely stressful or disturbing event impairs a person’s ability to cope, it’s often considered to be traumatic.

While trauma doesn’t always directly lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or other trauma-related disorders, it is beneficial for those who have witnessed or experienced trauma—as well as their loved ones—to know the signs and symptoms of PTSD, ways to treat it, and how to seek help.

Trauma can vary in severity and impact—in fact, approximately one in three people who experience severe trauma also experience PTSD.

Despite its more common association with soldiers returning from combat situations and the horrors of war, PTSD is a condition that can apply to anyone who has witnessed or experienced traumatic, life-threatening, or life-changing events.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify signs and symptoms of trauma and related disorders in adults, young adults, and children
  • Understand how trauma disorders are currently affecting displaced persons or refugees from low- and middle-income countries
  • Learn about evidence-based interventions that are available to help people struggling with trauma disorders in low resource settings
