Beginning: 11th January 2021

from 6pm to 10pm


Five Weeks

This qualification comprises two mandatory components;


Module 1: Understanding Psychological Trauma - this theory-based component introduces the learner to the impact of trauma and factors which may increase resilience to trauma. Learners will look at the differences between acute, chronic, complex and secondary trauma, and how adverse childhood experiences study has impacted on the understanding and response to psychological trauma today. Learners will also look at how psychological trauma can affect an individual and the possible effects of the brain. Learners will explore the elements that influence the impact of psychological trauma on an individual and also the factors that may protect and enhance resilience.


Module 2: Responding to Psychological Trauma - this component will provide learners with an understanding of the purpose, process and ethical considerations when using a trauma screening tool. Learners will have the opportunity to use a trauma screening tool to evaluate whether an individual would benefit from a trauma recovery plan and also to inform which strategies and activities might be included in the plan. This qualification complements the AIM suite of Level 2 - Level 6 counselling qualifications, which are designed to develop the necessary skills and knowledge for aspiring and practising counsellors. The Level 2 Award in Understanding and Responding to Physiological Trauma may be completed as either an introduction to the Level 2 and/or Level 3 counselling qualifications, or could be taken alongside these qualifications to further develop the learner’s knowledge and therapeutic skills to prepare them for working with individuals who have experienced trauma.
