About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The purpose of the BTI micro-credential 'The Trauma Responsive Organisation', is to prepare graduates to better understand and have the skills to work in a trauma-responsive way within their professional or organisational setting. The aim is to support the development of competent, reflexive practitioners who can appropriately respond to people who have experienced trauma in its many forms. Students will be guided to understand what it means to operate in a trauma-informed and trauma-responsive way within a faith-based contextual framework. This micro-credential honours ethical principles central to well-being and flourishing, and as a programme based in Aotearoa New Zealand, the programme upholds the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, respecting and valuing the wisdom of all cultures as expressions of humanity in all its diversity and beauty.
