Students will prepare an eight-page, double-spaced paper that analyzes the current world event chosen (attached – human sex trafficking in Washington State) from a Trauma Informed Care approach. Students will create a cohesive paper formulating a plan of action/treatment plan from the perspective of Trauma Informed Care to address the current world events and trauma outlined in the Current Events Paper. The paper will demonstrate the following competencies: 1) Articulate an understanding of Trauma Informed Care; 2) Integrate the course knowledge of theory with treatment implications; 3) Create a treatment plan including the investigation of people in the current events histories related to trauma as a community, individual or culture; recognize and define possible trauma symptoms on a micro and macro scale, and present the role that trauma has/may impact the individual and community going forward; 4) Analyze a traumatic event in the context of trauma theory, characteristics of trauma experiences and reactions relative to a chosen population, empirical approaches to prevention, intervention, and treatment, and additional considerations in the context of post-traumatic stress reactions and development of co-occurring substance use disorders. Students are expected to use at least eight peer-reviewed sources. The Treatment Paper must meet APA 6th edition requirements of format and style.
