Note from the Dean

Many of us have been deeply affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Sudden changes in health, family life, interpersonal relationships, work and finances to name only a few, have been traumatic and left many of our lives deeply altered. In response to this and other types of trauma, Oklahoma Christian University's College of Humanities and Bible now offers a Certificate in Trauma informed Family Support. This Certificate contains three courses: Family Trauma and Resilience, Basic Therapy Skills and Parenting and Relationship Education. These courses provide training for ministers, church leaders, social service workers, community counselors, law enforcement personnel, human resource professionals and many others working with those facing trauma and recovery. The certificate can be completed online and at one's own pace and schedule. As OC's College of Humanities and Bible develops the whole person for Christian faith and service, we encourage you to consider whether this certificate will benefit you or others in the church, community or workplace.

Sincerely, Dr. Charles M. Rix
