The course employs an inclusive notion of trauma; students are able to draw from the broad range of existing knowledge, skills and research of staff in the Centre for Trauma, Resilience and Growth, and learn experientially through workshops and seminars aimed at developing their own personal awareness, therapeutic skills and knowledge.
