The Bachelor of Trauma and Healing responds to the increasing interest within both Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities regionally, nationally and internationally, for courses which address the effects of trauma and which facilitate skills to support healing. Students will be provided with an informed education of the origins and effects of trauma. They will also be provided with a learning pathway to develop the skills and insight to deal with social and emotional trauma in various interpersonal and professional contexts.
