The team of the Psychological Trauma and Resilience Unit, created by OSE after the January 2015 attacks in Charlie Hebdo and HyperCacher, was mobilized immediately after the attack in Nice.
July 14, 2016, at the end of the fireworks celebrating the French national holiday, a terrorist drove into the crowd on the Promenade des Anglais. More than 30 000 people had come, including many families. 86 people died in the attack and the result of their injuries. The number of people facing trauma is countless.
Two psychiatrists from the OSE team, Abram Coen and Marc Windisch, were called up in support of the medical and psychological crisis unit. They assisted during the first evaluation interviews and worked with dozens of people, couples, parents, children who were in shock and trying to move past the visions and sounds of horror.
Dr. Coen spoke about his work in Le Monde newspaper dated Monday, July 18, 2016 with Dr. Michel Spodenkiewicz, a member of the Psychological Trauma and Resilience Unit of the OSE
