In this first course in the Certificate in Trauma and Spiritual Care, students will explore the basic dynamics of trauma from a variety of perspectives: sociological, psychological, psychiatric, neuroscience, relational, theological and spiritual. We will begin by exploring the great variety of trauma events, the demographics of trauma, related studies from the emerging field of traumatology. From the psychological and psychiatric fields we will identify trauma symptoms, and the concept of PTSD and Traumatic Loss. We will learn how to recognize the presence of trauma. Finally, we will explore the theological, spiritual and moral dimensions to trauma and the traumatized person, including the concept of “moral injury.” Along the way, we will touch on implications for the treatment and healing of traumatized persons, but a subsequent course in the certificate program will deal more directly with the dynamics of healing, recovery and treatment. We welcome to this class all who minister to and with traumatized persons. Classes will be held during 4 weekends: 9/7-8, 10/5-6, 11/2-3, 11/30-12/1. Fridays: 6-9pm, Saturdays: 9am-4pm.
