Understanding the effects of trauma and what clinical approaches are used to treat it has a long and complicated history. We will differentiate between T trauma (single episode) and t trauma (relational/developmental). As clinicians many of us work with patients who have experienced relational trauma. This class will provide a basic introduction to the topic and will touch down briefly on a variety of forms of traumatic experience and how trauma may impact transference/countertransference dynamics.
