Childhood Trauma: Types, Effects, and Treatments, 2nd Edition

Price: $16.95 Hours:2 Contact Hours
Item # N1636  

Expiration Date: May 31, 2018

This intermediate-level course provides a foundation for understanding the types of trauma children experience, including both acute and chronic traumatic events, and how trauma affects the child's affective, physiological, attentional, behavioral, and relational development and abilities. Participants will learn about the factors affecting a child's response to trauma, including intrapersonal factors, family and systemic factors, cumulative traumatic exposure, and cultural considerations. The course discusses posttraumatic play and reenactment and explores how children manifest their distress posttrauma. Several kinds of trauma are discussed and case vignettes are presented to illustrate the ways traumatic experiences may manifest in children.  Children can be exposed to many different types of trauma. Child maltreatment includes emotional maltreatment, neglect, physical abuse, and sexual abuse. Traumas within the family environment include intimate partner violence and parental substance abuse. Children can also experience situational trauma, such as childhood traumatic grief, serious childhood medical illness, and homelessness.

The course also describes trauma related to bullying and school violence, community violence, world events (including natural disasters, terrorism and politically motivated violence), and immigration and resettlement, and includes discussions of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and Boston Marathon bombings. Trauma-informed care and treatments are detailed, such as psychological first aid, trauma systems therapy, child-parent psychotherapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, play and expressive therapies, and case management. This course is intended for social workers, mental health counselors, psychologists, marriage and family therapists, pediatric and behavioral health nurses, school personnel, and other healthcare providers working with trauma-exposed youth. The course may also be helpful to clinicians working with adult clients whose symptoms stem from childhood trauma.

Special Considerations in Trauma Nursing

Price: $43.95 Hours:13 Contact Hours
Item # N1677  

Expiration Date: December 31, 2018

After an introduction to the etiology of trauma and components of a trauma care system, this course highlights special considerations beyond the initial assessment of the trauma patient.  These considerations include areas of high-risk and special populations seen in trauma care.  Shock states and burn/cold trauma require special nursing assessment and early nursing intervention and management. Nursing considerations for special populations, such as pregnant women, children, geriatric, and bariatric patients are presented with current evidenced-based practice. Most nurses within emergency departments and critical care require education in disaster preparation as they are considered the front-line healthcare professionals managing events that potentially strain the facilities and local government health delivery systems.  The chapter on disaster management will present the definitions of disaster and nursing responsibilities during a disaster.  Finally, psychosocial considerations, such as the patient and their support system’s perception of the traumatic event, will assist the nurse to assess coping mechanisms and to support the patient and their family holistically.

This course is an extraction of, and should not be taken in conjunction with N1662 Essentials of Trauma Nursing (30 contact hours).

Orthopedic Nurses - ONCB has approved this course for 2.6 Category A contact hours and 10.4 Category B contact hours toward recertification.
