In addition, each course may address specific counseling models or tools and specific counseling issues that are considered relevant to a particular target field or ministry.

Trauma & Restoration Module 1 - Introduction ( CNH 521 )

This is the first of seven courses within the MA in T&R. This module is onsite (in person) and designed to lay the foundation to the whole program. This includes introductory lecture, academic orientation, group activities, etc. This MA in Trauma & Restoration is conceived for the purpose of bringing awareness of the impact of trauma and facilitating restoration of health and wholeness in individuals, families, and communities. The impact of trauma is addressed on the whole person (spirit, soul, and body), on relationships, and on specific people groups. It is also designed to train and equip workers on the field and increase their effectiveness in ministering to their communities in a trauma- informed and wholistic way. This MA is designed specifically for those who have been actively involved in trauma related ministry (such as refugee work, crisis intervention, human trafficking ministry, etc.) and those who are working with counselling schools and ministries in the UofN. They are engaged in a long-term effort of bringing understanding and healing in places devastated by trauma (people groups, whole person impact, inner dynamics, etc.)

Trauma & Restoration Module 2 - Theology of suffering & healing ( CNH 522 )

Module 1 is the second module of seven courses within the MA in T &R. Module one is planned with an online self-study portion, an online intensive (live lectures), and an application within the student’s context. This online module integrates the three components in a flexible way. It includes regular time together for content processing and personal support. The self-study covers materials and assignments that prepare the candidates for the live lectures, such as required readings, reflection papers, videos, instruction, etc. The self-study part will, at times, be integrated and alternate with the intensive/online lectures and the application in a way that will facilitate the needs of this module. Establishing a strong theological framework of reference is very important for the students as they start their studies on Trauma & Restoration. When Trauma entered the world, at the fall, the most devastating effect of all was the separation from God and the resulting relational break. God’s amazing plan in mending that break is an ongoing process of restoration. Understanding trauma and restoration within the context of the overall biblical narrative brings the foundational perspective needed for the rest of their studies.
