In January Unni Heltne gave a 2.5 days course on TrT for 30 psychologist students at Vietnam National University in Hanoi. The course was a part an exchange project funded by the Norwegian Directorate for Internationalisation (DIKU), and was one of several courses given to students as a Winter School. For Children and War Foundation, this is an exciting project as it allow TRT to be included in the pre-service training and continuous development of professionals. Although TRT was developed primarily to be used by non-specialist mental health workers and lay persons, the commitment and buy-in of specialists is very important for training and supervision of group leaders, as well as for referrals and sustainability.
