About the course

Aims of the course

  • To create a coaching space for students to explore the impact that traumatic and difficult events have on peoples' lives. To explore what trauma is, either as the 'recipient' or as a 'witness'
  • To propose ways in which coaching can enable students to become more aware of the impact of trauma and how this can be handled
  • Building upon this awareness, to develop strategies for how to 'be' and what to 'do' to cope and thrive
  • To create post-traumatic 'exit strategies' through coaching approaches
  • To do so in a coaching-based, safe and responsible manner which acknowledges - and in no way seeks to replace - the vital application of therapeutic interventions
  • To create learning through coaching approaches, relevant literature, discussions and shared experiences

Each week of an online course is roughly equivalent to 2-3 hours of classroom time. On top of this, participants should expect to spend roughly 2-3 hours reading material, etc., although this will vary from person to person.

While they have a specific start and end date and will follow a weekly schedule (for example, week 1 will cover topic A, week 2 will cover topic B), our tutor-led online courses are designed to be flexible and as such would normally not require participants to be online for a specific day of the week or time of the day (although some tutors may try to schedule times where participants can be online together for web seminars, which will be recorded so that those who are unable to be online at certain times are able to access material).

Virtual Learning Environment

Unless otherwise stated, all course material will be posted on the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) so that they can be accessed at any time throughout the duration of the course and interaction with your tutor and fellow participants will take place through a variety of different ways which will allow for both synchronous and asynchronous learning (discussion boards etc).
