In cooperation with the Administration for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief of Republic of Slovenia, DPPI SEE hosted the Critical Incident Stress Management workshop in Ljubljana. The workshop was held between 15-16 November with participation of all DPPI SEE member states. Experts in the field of psychology, social work and first responders had the opportunity to exchange of methods and practices used for psychological support to first responders after facing critical incidents at the work place. The Administration for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief of Republic of Slovenia use the opportunity to present its own system and how it evolved over the years. The other member states through the group works and the discussions also shared their national experiences, challenges and needs in that context. This is the first workshop of this nature organized within DPPI SEE and the recommendation from the training audience was that a follow up should be organized and exchange on the topic to be continued.
