Abstract or Summary
  • Psychology of Trauma 101 is part of the Psych 101 Series that includes Motivation 101, Emotional Intelligence 101, and so forth. The goal, I infer, is to bring the basics of psychology to the public, one topic at a time. Psychology of trauma is not typically presented to students or the public this way. Typically, an introductory psychology class would cover stress, mental health, and related topics, but leave psychology of trauma for an upper-division course. Seeing Psychology of Trauma 101 sitting next to Intelligence 101 was unexpected, but it makes sense. Trauma affects a lot of people, and surely as many would benefit from knowing the basics as they would for the basics of, say, IQ testing.
