Abstract

Early childhood trauma can have adverse effects on brain development. This results in higher rates of mental health and medical problems in adults. Unfortunately, psychiatry trainees are not adequately trained in dealing with trauma survivors. Hence, we implemented an online trauma curriculum and assessed its efficacy. Socratic methods of teaching, flipped classroom approach, brainstorming, role play, and case-based discussions were utilized. Participants were able to exhibit good knowledge and clinical skills as assessed through summative assessment and communication skills assessment. This curriculum showed online training can help with clinical skill development along with improving knowledge when dealing with trauma survivors.
