Umgang mit Rechtspopulismus - Eine Handreichung für die Diakonie

Das Erstarken rechtspopulistischer Kräfte in Deutschland hat auch die Arbeit der Diakonie vor neue Herausforderungen gestellt. Wann und wie reagieren wir auf Provokationen und Tabubrüche? Wie gehen wir mit Gruppierungen um, aus deren Reihen die Arbeit des evangelischen Sozialverbandes angegriffen und diffamiert wird? Wo müssen wir klare Grenzen setzen, und an welcher Stelle sollten wir gelassen bleiben, um den Populisten nicht in die Hände zu spielen? Pauschale Antworten gibt es nicht. (Diakonie Deutschland, Evangelisches Werk für Diakonie und Entwicklung e.V., 2018)

Welcome to the Medical Peace Work website

As medical professionals we care for the life, health and wellbeing of our patients. Violence, weapons and war cause enormous suffering and misery, and endanger what is important for us. 

It is therefore our professional responsibility to work towards the prevention of violence and the promotion of peace, human rights and human security. 

Medical Peace Work is an emerging field of expertise in health work, violence prevention and peace building. 

Medical Peace Work is a partnership of medical organizations and teaching institutions committed to the development of this new field of expertise. 

Medical Peace Work is also seven online courses and a collection of teaching resources for medical peace education. You can find them here on this website.

Neuroscientist thinks one way to fight opioid addiction is to tackle loneliness

(...) (Rachel) Wurzman, a neuroscientist, says she thinks there is a way to make recovery from opioid addiction easier: social connection. That idea is informed by her work with the striatum, a region at the base of the forebrain that helps enable decision-making and is dramatically affected by social connection.

Umsetzung der BORA-Empfehlungen - Zwei Abschlussarbeiten zum aktuellen Stand

In unserem Schwerpunktthema im Mai 2015 stellten wir die Frage „Wofür brauchen wir BORA?“. Zu dieser Zeit waren die BORA-Empfehlungen gerade frisch verabschiedet, und die Einrichtungen gingen daran, Maßnahmen umzusetzen und ihre Konzepte zu überarbeiten. Dies geschah in unterschiedlichem Tempo und Ausmaß und mit unterschiedlichem Nachdruck durch die Leistungsträger. Dreieinhalb Jahre später werfen wir wieder einen Blick auf Maßnahmen zum Erwerbsbezug in der Suchtreha und fragen „Was hat sich getan?“. Dazu werden zwei Abschlussarbeiten vorgestellt, von denen die eine einen bundesweiten Überblick zur organisatorischen und konzeptionellen Entwicklung gibt und die andere sich auf die konkrete Umsetzung in einer Einrichtung konzentriert.
