K&R Course Part I in Giessen, Germany
On 25-26 June 2016 Dan and Anna travelled to Germany to give a seminar about Kidnap for Ransom and PTSD. It was extremely intense two days for 26 young people who learnt a lot about the issue of kidnappings and the ways to avoid it as well as experiencing on their own skin simulated environment and few methods used by kidnappers and criminals to frighten the victims. The bravest of them have tried to withstand mild version of water-boarding - officially recognized as aggressive investigation/questioning technique. The participants had also a chance to acquire skills of bondage breaking, evasion and escaping from the assailant. At the end of the course they also learnt about K&R related trauma, PTSD syndromes and psychological problems the victims face after being rescued.
The K&R Course Part II is expected to happen in early 2017.
