The Certificate in Trauma Counselling for Front-Line Workers is designed for experienced frontline workers (nurses, clergy, social workers, residential workers, addiction counselors) who provide short-term (non-psychotherapy) counseling contact with vulnerable populations in community based settings. The trauma issues experienced by adult clients/consumers may include: early childhood trauma, violent crime, work related trauma, motor vehicle accidents and chronic and terminal illness.
Participants will be given the most current information on the biopsychosocial phenomenon of trauma, and training in how to assess and respond ethically and appropriately to clients, given the parameters of the workplace. We will also examine how workers and organizations are affected by and respond to working with traumatized individuals and develop trauma-informed approaches to work that enhance personal and professional resilience.
