Our Trauma-Informed Approach

Our trauma-informed curriculum prepares students to be aware of, and responsive to, the impacts of trauma on individuals, families, organizations, communities, and the broader society.

The GSSWSR received a transformative gift in 2017 that enabled us to expand our trauma-informed curriculum development for the M.S.S. program.
