What is Overview of Assessment & Interventions?

Our Overview of Assessment & Interventions course is an essential guide to learning how to conduct proper assessments resulting in an appropriate diagnosis or pre-screening evaluations. This course addresses assessment approaches, clinical interventions, research, theory and practical applications to help the trauma care professional assist clients. The syllabus focuses on the process by which one could conduct assessments that could add to an appropriate diagnosis. Participants will gain the skills to be able to recognize the differences between usual and distressed behavior, approach cases with skill, and have minimal adverse effects upon the client, family and community.

In this second course of Clinical Traumatology designation, participants will expand the specialty of their practice to include the field of trauma recovery which includes focus on group work and methods for assisting traumatized individuals.
