The European Network for Traumatic Stress

Training & Practice

Abstract

The TENTS-TP project is committed to widely disseminate and implement evidence based care to those affected by traumatic events that promotes social inclusion throughout the entire European region. This will be achieved by developing guidelines that effectively integrate mental health promotion and disorder prevention into the training and practice of professionals in mental health and social services.

TENTS-TP will improve resiliency within member and partner countries through enabling them to appropriately manage the psychosocial consequences of traumatic events. In particular Eastern and Southern countries including several post conflict areas will be actively involved in the project. The final aim is to raise levels of knowledge and expertise of the end users of this project (mental health and social service professionals) which will result in improved services to those affected by traumatic events. Professionals responsible for teaching and training in this field will be identified, provided with evidence based practice teaching package and equipped to implement this in a sustainable manner in partner countries.
