No. 81 How to survive detention and long imprisonment

It’s normal to experience fear, helplessness, inability to influence or change the situation.


In this article you’ll find some recommendations to reduce the level of stress during the detention.

For a better understanding of how to survive difficult times, the article refers to the experience of Austrian psychotherapist Victor Frankl, who survived the concentration camp. He described three simple steps to overcome despair and panic.
