January, 2022:

A trial seems to be a difficult and emotional procedure, particularly for the injured parties. Often, the victims are completely torn out of their own lives and - in a state of psychological and mental crisis - have to cope with the court negotiotions without any professional help. Fortunately, psychosocial process facilitators are being trained to support victims in these situations. So far, however, there are only a few trainers in Germany who can offer an additional qualification in psychosocial process assistance. One of the few trainers is Gabi Piontkowski, who is a lecturer at the University of Applied sciences of Public Administration Bremen. The local newspaper in Bremen „Weser Kurier“ talked to her and other experts in this field.

Projekt DigiComp: Fit für die digitale Zukunft: IPoS schult Senioren im Bremer Ortsteil Borgfeld

Mehr Digitalkompetenz für Senioren: Unter diesem Titel lud das IPoS in Kooperation mit der Polizei Bremen, den Seniorenbeauftragten des Borgfelder Beirates und dem Netzwerk Digitalambulanzen zu einer Informationsveranstaltung für die Generation 60+ ins Stiftungsdorf Borgfeld ein. Rund 60 Seniorinnen und Senioren waren dieser Einladung gefolgt. Die Präventionsbeauftragte der Polizei Bremen, Ulrike Dunecke, informierte über Tricks und Fallen im Netz, von Fakeshops bis zum digitalen Enkelbetrug. Die Veranstaltung fand statt im Rahmen des aus dem Erasmus+ Programm der Europäischen Union geförderten Projekts „DigiComp“, einem Gemeinschaftsprojekt des IPoS, der Erciyes Universität in Kayseri/Türkei und der Universität Barcelona. Das IPoS hatte zuvor Senioren, Polizeibeamte und weitere Experten aus Bremen zur Digitalkompetenz und Gefahren im Internet interviewt. Über das vom Bundesinnenministerium geförderte Netzwerk Digitalambulanzen sollen nach der Auftaktveranstaltung im Stiftungsdorf weitere Schulungen zur Verbesserung der Digitalkompetenz von Senioren in Borgfeld durchgeführt werden. Dazu wurde eine Kooperationsvereinbarung mit dem Bürgerverein Borgfeld, der Träger dieser Schulungen sein wird, abgeschlossen.
