PPHS offers a new training in the prevention of radicalization
A training course entitled “The role of local cooperation in preventing radicalization: the causes of forming and effective prevention of extremism” will be held on 20 January 2020 in Warsaw. This is a new training module, which aims to raise local institutions’ awareness of counteracting radicalization.
The training course was prepared to provide better understanding of the radicalization process manifested through problems, occurring nowadays, such as hate speech, xenophobia and nationalism. In order to react properly and recognize the symptoms of radicalization, it is essential to know the mechanisms of its formation. Many activities that strengthen risk factors in local communities can have an impact on the formation, dissemination and escalation of radical behaviors.
The new PPHS training module is addressed to: employees of social institutions, teachers, psychologists, probation officers, representatives of LEAs and everyone interested in this topic. The training will be conducted by a PPHS expert, PhD in social sciences, former Head of the Social Prevention Department at the Polish Police Headquarters, who currently works at the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Training (CEPOL). Her interests focus on the sociology of security and social activities to prevent crime and other negative social phenomena.
