Course summary

Psychological trauma is a growing area of both academic and professional interest. There is an increasing recognition that a wide variety of occupations and professions are working with traumatised populations daily.

Course overview

An understanding of the needs, and what can be identi?ed as best practice in terms of working with traumatised individuals, can vastly improve a person’s engagement and recovery.

The underlying philosophy behind the course is an inclusive holistic view of trauma, focusing on the contributions of neurological, psychological and sociological views of psychological trauma throughout. The course allows you to gain several transferable skills, whilst encouraging you to explore several theoretical concepts, and your application to psychological trauma in the real setting.


Assessment tasks frequently require students to consider how theory and evidence are applicable to real-world examples. These may be scenario-based, reflective, or more discursive. Students will have opportunities to engage in formative assessment opportunities which build understanding, knowledge and awareness (but do not contribute to a module mark) in preparation of summative assessment tasks (those which do contribute to the overall module mark).
