An Introduction to Trauma Theology
- Course Dates: Sat 12 June, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
NOTE: Due to high demand for the February 24 course, this is a repeat of that morning session with Dr Karen O’Donnell.
In this course we will explore the development of ‘trauma’ as a human experience and consider the ways in which this intersects with theological ideas and beliefs. We will examine some of the key concepts at the heart of trauma-engaged theology and what such theology is aiming to address today. We will consider together some of the key writings in this field and reflect on what the implications of this kind of theology might be for theology more broadly and in terms of pastoral care.
