Developing the sustainable psychiatry

Anssi Leikola is a psychiatrist devoted to the treatment of emotional trauma, i.e. various dissociative disorders. For a long time, he has also been striving to find theoretical understanding of trauma, or the logic behind dissociative disorders. How can they be understood effectively and treated in a holistic way? How to provide sufficiently individualized treatment? Learning to apply the theory of trauma into practice will be a lifelong journey for anyone, especially for all of those working with traumatized individuals. Anssi possesses long experience of working with dissociative patients, both as a psychiatrist and a psychotherapist. In recent years, he has also been training advanced-level psychotherapists and leading supervisory groups.
