The psychological sequelae of traumatic events and their resolution will be the focus of this course. This will be illustrated using a four-stage model: victimization, aftermath, integration, and full recovery. Specific trauma-related disorders will be covered, including simple and complex PTSD. The trauma literature will be examined through a psychohistorical lens.
