Trauma-informed social work practice
addresses the needs of individuals, families, and communities increasingly exposed to toxic and traumatic stress and confronts issues involving justice, obtaining legal redress, and seeking protection against further harm. The Specialized Practice Curricular Guide for Trauma-Informed Social Work Practice
confirms trauma-informed practice as an essential component of social work education and provides competency information and tools to prepare future social workers for today’s specialized practice demands.
This guide was made possible by the generous support of the National Center for Social Work Trauma Education
at Fordham Graduate School of Social Service and the Council on Social Work Education.
