The university course in “Trauma Education and Trauma-Centred Counselling” was established at Sigmund Freud University Vienna in the 2018 academic year.
People who have already suffered trauma in their childhood often need more support than what helpers have learned in their training as educators, teachers and other educational and psychosocial professions. This course, in simple and complex ways, provides the necessary expertise to professionally support children, adolescents and adults who have been traumatised. The psychological findings of psychotraumatology and its related scientific fields, attachment and resilience research as well as neurobiological models of psychological trauma form the basis of trauma education work.
