Stress and trauma sensitivity in peacebuilding

Participants are able

  • to understand the meaning of stress, trauma as well as stress and trauma sensitivity in the context of peacebuilding
  • to understand the impact of different forms of violence and power dynamics on trauma (intersectional perspective)
  • to reflect on how stress and trauma can affect themselves in their role as well as teams and organisations

The stress- and trauma-sensitive approach (STA) by medica mondiale is at the heart of this training. Participants learn about trauma sensitivity in a stress and trauma sensitive learning atmosphere. Self-care is woven into the training process as a crosscutting element. The STA approach also provides a practical orientation to put into practice stress and trauma sensitive peacebuilding with target groups, partners, staff (members), teams and organisations. This includes the impact of trauma dynamics on staff and teams.

In our training, we provide guidance how organisations, projects and individual practitioners can integrate trauma sensitivity into their activities, programmes and organisational structures.
