Safely Travelling Abroad

Violence, conflict and fragility are on the increase worldwide. The majority of all partner countries of German development cooperation are affected. In many countries this means increased risk, psychological strain and mental stress for those undertaking assignments in partner countries. You may be required during your time in a partner country to work with traumatised individuals or to provide first aid in an emergency.

Our courses in the field of personal safety, stress and trauma are designed to increase your safety and security awareness in your working context and everyday life in the partner country. They will teach you how to respond in an emergency and provide first aid, and will hone your awareness of how best to deal with psychological strain, mental stress and trauma.
