Students will gain understanding of the major theories and research findings related to stress and trauma, including the effects of stress and trauma on mental and physical health, factors related to more effective coping with stress/trauma (e.g., social support). and interventions designed to decrease the negative effects of stress and trauma (e.g., stress management training). Students will practice analyzing and critiquing the scientific methods used to study these topics and will have the opportunity to apply stress and trauma research to their own lives through reflection and personal application assignments.
