The Global Impact of Trauma Course 2022

Experts from around the world share the latest updates in the field

Psychological trauma knows no boundaries: it affects people of every background, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age, and gender. The impact on people around the globe is significant. According to a 2016 study, over 70% of those surveyed across six continents have experienced a traumatic event.

McLean Hospital offers this course aimed at dispelling long held misconceptions about assessing and treating emotional trauma. Topics include delivering care in low-resource settings and exploring special populations such as the unique experiences of refugees and displaced persons.

The event took place September 8, 2022.
