Course Description: This course is intended for practitioners who work with individuals and/or groups that have experienced trauma. The supporting article details the ways in which individuals within a given society react to different types of trauma, and the consequent ways that such individuals construct meaning. This report also explores the process of meaning-making at the collective level among both victims and perpetrators. The article is divided into two parts. Part one focuses on victims, and their desire to remember and create a group narrative around the respective trauma. Conversely, part two focuses on perpetrators.
