Violence and Trauma Studies - Postgraduate Work in Preventing Violence and Creating Trauma Recovery

January 26, 2017 at 4:51 PM

Download the brochure here.

Since 2015 AUT University has offered postgraduate studies in Violence and Trauma with specialisms in Family Violence.

The course is designed for distance study and is suitable for practitioners currently in employment or considering working in a variety of fields where the misuse of power has disadvantaged others. The staff involved have strong foundations in decades of Family Violence work and study extends to fields related to family violence: drug and alcohol, probation, police, mental health, prison, refugee, women’s refuge, social work, counselling victims and offenders, accident and emergency, Maori health, and the military. All forms of harm and disrespect are considered. 

The approach taken is a problem solving one and we ask you to bring a specific violence or trauma problem that you have an interest in solving or improving. Theory, best practice, your experience, and creative applications are melded and tested for effectiveness. The course is not just about describing and theorising but given the growing prevalence of abuse this needs to be study to make a difference.

The course is part-time or full time and progresses from a Post Graduate Certificate to a Post Graduate Diploma and then to a Masters in Health Practice or Health Science (Violence and Trauma Studies). Study is both a block course in March and another in August and is supported by online processes and contact.  There are written assignments and there are no exams. You will need to have done some study at the undergraduate level.
