Not a day passes without a traumatic event – an event that involves a threat to one’s own life or body, or involves witnessing a life threatening event that someone else faces. Such an event is way beyond the range of usual human experience; an event which would be markedly distressing to almost anyone. The critical factor seems to be the person’s cognitive construction of what has happened to them. Typically the reaction is one of fear helplessness or horror.
This course equips you with the specialised counselling skills necessary for trauma counselling.
How often have you wished you could really help someone in crisis, instead of offering well-meant, but ultimately useless advice? With a little basic training, you can learn to listen, provide support and offer real guidance to people in need.
Whether you apply the skills learnt in your home community, at work, through your church or simply within your social circle, you can offer a valuable, supportive service that makes a positive contribution towards helping individuals overcome emotional hardship and issues.
This course will equip you with the skills you need to help make a difference in people’s lives.
