PHIT Final Conference took place on November 29th and 30th in Barcelona. During this two-day event, partners presented the final results of the analyses and studies carried out during the project, while engaging with the audience through debate and questions. They also presented for the first time the practical tools that they created for guiding the professionals interventions and interactions with the victims in terms of psychological evaluation and care, security and training.

After the conference, three specialized workshops were organized to deepen the knowledge gathered during the project and offer guidance to professionals and experts who directly work with victims, in order to better take into account their psychological condition and tailor their intervention on those psychological aspects.

The practical information as well as the Powerpoint presentations and the video footage of the conference are made available below. All reports and newspaper articles on the conferences are also listed in the “about the conference” section.
