Contact and advice centre
Violence Prevention Network is establishing a psychotherapeutic contact and advice centre that offers conciliatory case advice to social pedagogues as and when needed. In addition, it is developing distancing and reintegration assistance and family counselling services with psychotherapeutic support, which will be available on an appointment basis and in the form of acute interventions or short therapies. When needed, clients may be referred to longer-term psychotherapeutic support.
The contact and advice centre works with a network of psychotherapists offering inpatient and outpatient support. It expands its network as needed. Its members contribute by developing quality standards, offering consultation services on questions of occupational law, providing intervision and supervision, and coordinating referrals to psychotherapists by contacting institutions and outpatient clinics.
Patients with radical tendencies
The project team is also setting up a dedicated advice service for psychotherapists who have noticed radical tendencies in their patients. This will facilitate a transfer of knowledge and experience that also covers interdisciplinary aspects. TRIAS issues briefing papers on the psychological and psychoanalytical aspects underlying radicalisation and extremism, also touching upon aspects of tertiary prevention. Plans include a series of lectures aimed at psychotherapeutic institutes, specialist associations and professionals in the field of prevention and the associated regulatory structures.
TRIAS engages in an interdisciplinary and academic exchange with professionals in the field of extremism prevention and deradicalisation. The project represents its concept and makes specialist information and experiences available.
