Despite the devastating pandemic and political situation in Brazil, the project on NET in poor neighbourhoods (favealas) in Rio de Janeiro was successfully completed: even in the context of an increased risk of violence, NET was superior to the usual local treatment in terms of reducing symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.
In addition, the use of collective NET (NETfacts) was initiated: Led by Tamera Vinhas, Brazilian artists composed a song based on narratives about violence in couple relationships. The aim is to give voice to the “hot” memory contents as components of the trauma experience that are subject to individual and collective avoidance. This is to counter myths and false assumptions, increase adequate social and therapeutic support for victims and drive effective prevention measures starting from society.
