Semester 2 unit at Yarra Theological Union
This unit explores the impacts and experiences of trauma in human experience, including via industrial and workplace disasters, natural disasters, tragic accidents, domestic violence, child abuse, assaults and murder. It will begin by helping students to develop a broad understanding of the trauma and its psychobiological impacts on individual development and relationships. It will then focus on trauma in these contexts, including an exploration of complex trauma which emerges as a consequence of international conflict/war and terrorism. The unit also explores theological and spiritual perspectives on trauma, as well as psychological, pastoral and spiritual support strategies for victims of trauma. It also introduces concepts of post-traumatic growth in relation to pastoral care.
