Many studies document the widespread prevalence of trauma exposure and its lasting impact across the life course on all populations served by social workers. The intersection of socioeconomic status, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and national origin adds to the inherently complex impact of trauma exposure. An educational focus on Resilience and Trauma-Informed Perspectives prepares students for competent, trauma-informed practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities in all service settings.
