PVŠPS will promote the project and its outcomes through our online channels, website and social media. The project’s outputs (MOOCs, Toolkits, etc.) will be used by our academic workers (psychologists) in the courses to improve clinical competences and crisis management facilitating competences of our students both in the regular pre-graduate and lifelong learning courses, and also in their clinical practice.
