Objectives and competences

In recent years, emergency psychology has become consolidated in various health emergency services, social emergencies, civil protection and also in the private sector. The COVID 19 pandemic has accentuated this growth in the demand for hiring psychologists in various areas of intervention, as for example the SEM has done in the last two years. Thus, we believe that consolidated training, linked to professional practice, is very necessary at this time.
