About

The Clinical Mental Health Counseling - Trauma Studies Specialization at Lesley University is designed to help students develop expertise in psychosocial trauma work. The curriculum includes an overview of trauma theory and practice as well as focus on specific client populations and interventions.

Overview

Advances in neurobiology and increased public awareness have turned a spotlight on the profound biopsychosocial consequences of traumatic experiences on the lives of people. At the same time, growing numbers of those in need of such services, including military veterans, international refugees, and domestic violence survivors, are unable to access the services they need.
