PhD Title: Tales of Critical Incidents in the Mountains: A Narrative Approach

The focus of Eva’s PhD is on understanding the impact of critical incidents in the context of mountaineering using a narrative approach. Despite the inherently dangerous nature and high accidentality rate of the sport, there is currently little research to develop guidelines and resources aimed at supporting mountaineers who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic incident. This project aims to fill that gap.
