Entry to this course is at any time of year.
This course will be of interest both to survivors of traumatic events and those who, in their work, come across victims of traumatic incidents. The specially selected key text is written by a former sufferer of PTSD who has done his own research into the problem of PTSD and brings together in a comprehensive volume knowledge of the symptoms, complications and causes of PTSD and information about some available treatment approaches. Case histories are given and there is information about taking legal action, a discussion on debriefing methods, and essential reference material including Internet sites. The textbook is easy to read but is not only aimed at those recovering from PTSD.

Certificate of Professional Development in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness - P. D. Cert. (PTSD)
Recommended period of study: approx. 3 months or less.
This course will be of interest both to survivors of traumatic events and those who, in their work, come across victims of traumatic incidents. The specially selected key text is written by a former sufferer of PTSD who has done his own research into the problem of PTSD and brings together in a comprehensive volume knowledge of the symptoms, complications and causes of PTSD and information about some available treatment approaches. Case histories are given and there is information about taking legal action, a discussion on debriefing methods, and essential reference material including Internet sites. The textbook is easy to read but is not only aimed at those recovering from PTSD. Its unique compilation of information, personal stories and insights is invaluable to many professionals including the counsellor, psychotherapist, social worker, voluntary helper, member of the emergency services, law enforcement officer, lawyer, pastor or teacher and relatives of PTSD sufferers. A crucial chapter identifies bullying as a major cause of PTSD, thus extending the discourse on traumatic stress and its effects to include slow-acting or cumulative sources of stress as well as sudden incidents and disasters.
Study will be carried out by reading the textbook and submitting written assignments these can be sent by e-mail. There is no minimum study time and the student may complete the course by submitting all coursework to satisfactory standard.
Suggestions for further reading concerning therapies suitable for PTSD will be given for those who wish to train in such therapies or expand their knowledge to help people choose appropriate treatments.
Feedback will be given by the tutor (who is qualified in counselling and psychotherapy) and all material submitted will be treated in strictest confidence.
There is no particular qualification required to take this course, but students should have good written English and be able to work with material of Advanced Level standard or above.
This course is NOT a substitute for counselling or psychotherapy, or for medical care, and people with psychological problems should seek appropriate treatment with a counsellor or psychotherapist. People with medical problems should consult their medical practitioner.
This course is NOT in itself a qualification in counselling or psychotherapy, though it may be used in conjunction with such qualifications to signify additional specialist learning.
