Natural and man-made disasters, sexual abuse, military combat, bullying, hate crimes and other assaults—what unifies these experiences is that the person feels a loss of control and fear for his or her well-being. Social work students and clinicians are not immune to being affected by their clients’ trauma narratives and traumatic reactions. This DVD depicts two social work interns and their sessions with clients, one of whom is a survivor of Hurricane Katrina and the other a young woman who has been sexually abused by her stepfather. Students are also shown discussing these client sessions with supervisors. The supervisors then present key teaching points for working with survivors of trauma.
