Course content

Providing an opportunity to understand the nature of psychological trauma, this course offers a rich, diverse foundation for working in the field of trauma for a broad range of professional disciplines.

Psychological trauma affects almost everyone at some point in their lives, be it through loss, accident or illness. Professionals from a wide range of backgrounds work with traumatised people.

This course is ideal if you are looking towards or already working in counselling, psychotherapy, psychology, social work, police/probation/prison services, education, NGOs or as emergency service staff.

It will enable you to develop, extend and deepen your knowledge of theory and practice relevant to your own work and build towards a masters-level qualification through a supervised research project of your choice. You will be able to draw from the broad range of existing knowledge, skills and research of staff and colleagues in the Centre for Trauma, Resilience and Growth.

You will learn experientially through group learning, workshops and seminars as well as through lectures aimed at developing your personal awareness, skills and knowledge. We strive to create a small vibrant learning community where we learn from each other, and also run a seminar series linked to this course.
