Course Overview

This is an advanced Diploma in Trauma studies with a strong focus on complex trauma, its presentations including illness and its recovery. This course aims to provide students with an understanding of the theory and treatment of trauma and complex PTSD related symptoms and specifically through the lens of interpersonal neurobiology, polyvagal theory and lifestyle medicine. It presents historical and emerging research and theory related to trauma and PTSD, with a focus on clinical treatment and practical responses to symptoms.

Students will explore a range of theoretical frameworks for understanding trauma, and what factors influence recovery and post-traumatic growth.

Therapeutic interventions will be discussed using empirical research and evidence-based practice of cases and clinical experience of working with severely traumatised individuals.

Trauma studies is suitable for; social workers, psychotherapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, GPs, nurses, Gardai, emergency responders, teachers, and anyone whose job brings them into contact with individuals dealing with trauma and PTSD. For existing practitioners, this course along with the case consultations will provide a basis for developing skills used in responding to traumatic presentations through a consilient multi disciplinary approach and moving away from reductionistic ways for working with the complexity of trauma presentations which unfortunately is the current dogma in the clinical field.
