Important Announcement - 

The WAVE Trauma Team has suspended recruitment for our upcoming courses. If you have signed up for an OCN-accredited course that was due to commence in September 2014, you should be aware that these courses will not now proceed. If this changes for individual courses, you will hear directly from us. As we feel it is important to offer our courses free to interested participants, we are seeking funding for courses to commence in October onwards.

We have also suspended recruitment for our BSc (Hons) in Psychological Trauma Studies that was due to commence in September 2014. We would encourage you to check back to our website for further updates on both our OCN courses and our degree programme.

If you need to contact us, please feel free to email Denise at d.mcnaughton@wavetrauma.org or call the Trauma Training Team on 028 9077 9922.

Many thanks.
