What is dissociation?
We have produced a short documentary series that explains clearly and comprehensively what emotional trauma, structural dissociation and polyvagal theories are and how they effect human life. Psychiatrist Anssi Leikola also explains how understanding these subjects helps us in creating sustainable psychiatry also called as trauma informed treatment.
The model of the sustainable psychiatry
According to my current perspective, the objectives of psychiatry are predominantly too modest. This is an important message because it can give people hope. Possibilities remain unused. For the existence of many very different premises, there seems to be considerable qualitative variation among the objectives.
Therefore, in raising the issue of the theoretical basis of psychiatry, it is my intention to give people reasonable hope of better treatment, better therapy, better realization of human rights, better life. I know that by stating things like these I might be looking for trouble but, on the other hand, I am assured that this will result in something really good. I am willing to take all the risks concerned in bringing these issues to light because there is potential for great collective rewards.
Cooperation is the key
Our team is composed of various experts in the field of trauma, some of which are also equipped with experiential expertise. Bringing these professionals and experiential experts together enables us to create more multifaceted trainings – and information for a broader audience.
