Trauma: A Study in Humanity   

Trauma is as much part of the human experience as is loss, grief and identity.  Like these other fundamental elements trauma’s power and influence cannot be overstated, with whole cultures and societies focused on minimizing and even avoiding these elements of the human condition.  As with all such core and critical matters there is a lot of confusion, conflicting information, over-simplification and just plain mis-information at personal and professional levels.  In this course we will take a look at critical dynamics of trauma, going beyond fight or flight, and into how these dynamics impact us and integrate into our daily lives.  We will look at interventions for healing (options, risks, outcomes) and how important the “contexts” of the trauma experience are in influencing our lives and how crucial is the “human element” for recovery and healing.  The goal of this course is to provide an overall framework for understanding trauma with the full range of trauma addressed and providing “functional” and helpful information for attendees.  This course has been found to be of value for persons from all backgrounds (professional and personal).
