Our workshops focus on the challenge of handling conflicts when personal and collective trauma has occurred. We assist in increasing knowledge and competence in how to handle such situations. See our workshops below:

How to deal with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) in conflicts

Purpose 

Our workshops focus on the challenge of handling conflicts when personal and collective trauma is a factoring ingredient. Practical and theoretical introduction on how to handle such situations.

For whom 

Personnel working with traumatized people (children and adults) and through their professional life working with war and flight related trauma.

What is trauma?

Psychological trauma occurs when a person continues to respond to and is affected by previous threats and perceived danger. The international accepted diagnostic term for this PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). However, this diagnostic term is also criticized to be a too Western interpretation of stress and traumatic experience, because it refers to “post” – as in previous and no longer current situations. In the world at large, the threat is very much continuously present, in the every day life, and life goes on.

This applies in our own backyard and own communities as well as in international conflicts.

This workshop focuses on how the support system (mediators, peace keeping forces, health personnel)  for traumatized people can be affected on an emotional level. As well as how to prevent working personnel from being drawn into personal powerlessness, stress and frustration.
