This course starts in September 2016 and is available for part-time study over two years. The next start date will then be September 2018.
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.
The MA Trauma Studies provides an excellent opportunity to understand the nature of psychological trauma. The course delivers a rich diverse theoretical foundation for working in the field of trauma for a broad range of professional disciplines.
The course will benefit those looking towards, or are already, working in the fields of counselling, psychotherapy, psychology, social work, probation or prison services, education, NGOs, emergency service staff and police.
Anyone who comes into contact with traumatised people and wants to know more about how to address the complex, challenging, intercultural needs of those who have experienced trauma can benefit from the course.
The programme 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 your own choice of supervised research project. 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 (CTRG).
You will learn experientially through group learning, workshops and seminars as well as lectures from the staff aimed at developing your own personal awareness, skills and knowledge. Our aim is to create a small vibrant learning community where we learn from each other.
