Vision & Mission
Our vision as a community of international trauma focused trainers, therapists and researchers is to provide support and assistance in early trauma response, ongoing trauma response, trauma training and trauma capacity building.
To support building local trauma response capacity where it is needed:
- focusing on providing expertise, training, education, research and innovation.
What We Do
Trauma Aid Europe provides support and assistance in countries where focused trauma therapy, including early trauma response, are not yet or are only inadequately available. In these projects, training and therapeutic treatment, trauma research are always closely linked and combined.
- We train qualified persons including paraprofessional workers in crisis areas, in psycho-traumatology including building trauma desensitization and resourcing capacities
- We assist in networking specialised trauma psychotherapists, EMDR trainers and therapists – locally, nationally, and internationally to support trauma response and treatment efforts
- We promote training courses and trauma research projects
Why We Help
All of us live in a situation where the number of survivors of natural disasters, victims of human violence, war, torture, and displacement, as well as the number of refugees, has increased dramatically and continues to grow. Trauma Aid Europe initiates and supports efforts to give psychologically affected people access to professional trauma therapy.
- Regaining emotional stability and mental health for traumatized children and adults
- Breaking the cycle of violence through timely trauma treatment
- A peaceful future – for all of us
