With the support ofFlemish government

For whom?

Local governments in Flanders


Untreated war trauma and the inability to find one’s place in society can in some cases contribute to extreme violence. To prevent this, it is important that frontline workers are aware of the impact trauma can have.

As a trauma expert, Solentra therefore offers policy support to local governments. We also focus on training and awareness-raising. This way, we teach front-line actors how to recognise signals and intervene appropriately.

Solentra sensitises on three levels:

  1. capacity building through our helpdesk, intervisions, supervisions and community-based consultations. We also organise an intensive individual coaching programme for 15 local governments to respond to concrete needs in the field.
  2. education and training (online and on-site)
  3. a hands-on digital coaching programme that we are co-creating with local governments for them to sustainably acquire the necessary expertise.  

Within this project, Solentra is part of an expert pool of five organisations working on the prevention of violent radicalisation and extremism.
