CPSY 4315: Practicum in Early Childhood Trauma-Informed Care

2 CreditsPracticum

This course is designed as a field-based practicum to be taken concurrently CPSY 4314. Students may not register only for 4315. Students taking the course will be able to work in a community setting with children ages 0-5. Students will collaborate with teachers who are experts in working with children and families who have experienced trauma. The course, in conjunction with CPSY 4314, offers a unique experience for students to dig deeply into current research about trauma, resilience, and child development and put that knowledge to immediate use in a quality early childhood education environment. Students will also have the opportunity to explore how, as practitioners, our ideas about best practice and quality care must be shaped by and around what we are learning about the lasting impact of trauma. Throughout the course, students will explore how race, class, and gender influence and intersect with our understanding of “best practice” as we help students develop a trauma-informed approach to working with children and families. This course offers students the opportunity to put theory into practice in a community setting that serves a diverse population.
