The cumulative effects of multiple and developmental trauma experiences are examined from the perspective of attachment theory, neurobiology and affect regulation. This course will provide a review of contemporary attachment theory and critically explore the social determinants of trauma manifestation. Culturally diverse attachment practices and behaviors are examined in relation to understanding the interplay between early exposures to trauma, the sequelae of trauma and the cost to society.
