Large-scale training programs implemented following traumatic events
The clinical protocol following the explosions in Beirut in August 2020
In partnership with Prof. Sami RICHA (head of the psychiatry department at the Faculty of Medicine of Saint Joseph University in Beirut and president of the Lebanese psychiatric society), an emergency health plan was launched to train 100 Lebanese psychiatrists, psychologists and nurses in Reconsolidation therapy to take care of the victims of the explosions. The clinical and research protocol is underway to treat psychological trauma to decrease the incidence of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The “PARIS MEMOIRE VIVE” clinical and research protocol deployed in France in 2015-2016
In partnership with Prof. Bruno MILLET, head of department at the Pitié Salpêtrière hospital, AP-HP). The treatment of Reconsolidation Therapy has been proposed to increase the capacity to treat victims of the mass attacks in Paris and Nice in 2015-2016. Two hundred psychiatrists, psychologists and IDEs have been trained within the AP-HP and the CHU de Nice. Hundreds of direct/indirect victims (estimated at 400) in NICE and PARIS were treated by these trained mental health professionals. Clinical investigation and research centers have been set up in these 2 cities and elsewhere.
