Special focus will be given to adverse childhood experiences and growing literature regarding best practices in trauma informed care. Social and behavioral topics include death, dying and response to injury, detection and treatment of substance abuse, development and aging, human sexuality, principles of violence identification and prevention, and psychiatric/behavioral conditions. Select readings from the medical humanities will allow for student reflection and reinforce concepts discussed in this module.
