The value of Trauma Education

An invitation to join us for a conversation with Prof Monica McWilliams and Dr Orla Lynch from University College Cork regarding the value of trauma education today.

The focus of the conversation will be on trauma informed practice and the value of the Post Grad Trauma Studies Programme. Further information on the Post Grad in Trauma Studies is available at

An overview to the Post Grad in Trauma Studies @UCC will be shared during the evening along with bursary information.

We have two amazing contributors – Prof Monica McWilliams will bring such a wealth of experience to the conversation given her work on domestic violence, her international work on human rights and peace engagement and her more recent work in NI focused on ending paramilitarism.

Prof Monica McWilliams is a Northern Irish academic, peace activist, human rights defender and former politician. She currently sits on the Independent Reporting Commission for the disbandment of paramilitary organisations in Northern Ireland.

Dr Orla Lynch’s current research focuses on victimisation and political violence in relation to the direct victims of violence, but also the broader psycho-social impact of victimisation and the perpetrator-victim complex.   Orla has also examined the notion of suspect communities in relation to the impact of counter terrorism measures on Muslim youth communities.

Dr Orla Lynch is currently a Senior Lecturer in Criminology and Asc. Dean of Graduates Studies at University College Cork, Ireland. She is also Academic Lead on Priority Six of the Academic Strategy and the Programme Director of the PG Dip in Trauma Studies (online).
