Degree Type: Minor
Format: In-Person

Were you born to help people? When someone suffers a traumatic event, they need help and support, as does their family. This includes emotional support. Trauma can emerge from emergencies, mental health, substance abuse, domestic violence and more. A minor in Trauma Intervention, in partnership with Trauma Intervention Program (TIP), will help give you the skills needed to provide excellent support in these times of need. TIP is a group of specially trained citizen volunteers who provide emotional aid and practical support and resources to victims of traumatic events and their families in the first few hours following a tragedy.


The Trauma Intervention minor equips not only Social Science majors but also Religion and Christian Ministries majors and Health and Wellness majors in meeting the emotional needs of others in crisis.
