Restorative History: Building Peace After Collective Trauma (IP-511)

Just as personal trauma can impact individuals, collective trauma can color and shape how groups of people experience reality and relate to one another. This course will inform our peacebuilding work through deepening our understanding of the effects of collective trauma and how to respond to it. This is a history course, but we will engage with ideas and methods drawn from theology, psychology, neurobiology, sociology, and literature as we seek to understand the enduring legacies of trauma and its impact on current relationships.

Course fulfills the following curricular requirements:
MAP – Core course
MAC – Chaplaincy elective
