  • Title
    • CONTEXT - The Collaborative Network for Training and Excellence in Psychotraumatology
  • Summary
    • CONTEXT aims to conduct high quality, innovative research, build capacity and expertise, and foster innovative practice in the area of global psychotraumatology. CONTEXT is an international, interdisciplinary collaboration between nine European partner organisations spanning the academic, non-governmental, voluntary, and public sectors. CONTEXT has three interconnected research programmes, each concerning a priority population in Europe: (1) EU-based asylum seekers and refugees; (2) Emergency-service personnel and humanitarian first-responders; and; (3) Survivors and perpetrators of childhood- and gender-based violence. Twelve CONTEXT fellows will receive a unique PhD training experience, working across populations not accessible in any other doctoral training programme. Each research project has been designed to address current and emergent skill and professional deficiencies, essential for curbing the adverse social consequences of trauma-related psychological distress. Fellows will graduate with an advanced knowledge of how to translate psychotraumatology research into practice, thereby contributing to mitigating the impact of psychotrauma in the EU. www.psychotraumanetwork.com
