SJSD 44 Trauma, Moral Injury in the LGBTQ+ Community

The course addresses the psycho-social-spiritual impact of trauma and moral injury on LGBTQ+ individuals and explores responses and interventions that affect the body, mind, heart and spirit of these individuals, and communities. Discussions may consider the ethical, social, economic and political structures and how root causes may be addressed for healing to occur. Students will analyze how spirituality and peace building are integral to addressing the results of trauma and moral injury and will also consider the role of restorative justice on the interpersonal and structural levels in addressing traumas.
