What is TENTS-TP?
The European Network for Traumatic Stress - Training & Practice
Approximately 80% of the population experience at least one traumatic event in the course of their lifetime. In order to prevent trauma survivors from developing posttraumatic disorders and to promote early recovery, evidence-based interventions should be available throughout the European region.
Between May 2007 and May 2009, the EU funded the TENTS project (The European Network for Traumatic Stress) and established a community wide network of expertise on posttraumatic stress treatment for victims of natural and other disasters and examined which interventions are effective in the aftermath of disaster and whether these are available throughout Europe. TENTS produced an evidence-based model of care with dissemination materials as brochures and guidelines and e-learning materials.

The TENTS-TP project (The European Network for Traumatic Stress - Training & Practice) will expand and develop the network and connect to other important European initiatives in the field of psychosocial care after trauma. TENTS-TP aims to implement evidence-based interventions to prevent trauma survivors from developing posttraumatic disorders and interventions to promote (early) recovery.
