In September we attended one of the most inspiring conference we have had the pleasure to present so far. Now we are happy to announce that we have been invited to the 8th European Conference on Mental Health to take on the main stage and to deliver captivating keynote speeches at Belfast, Ireland.
Watch the documentary about trauma and dissociation that explains clearly and comprehensively what emotional trauma, structural dissociation and polyvagal theories are and how they effect human life. Anssi Leikola explains how understanding these subjects helps us in creating sustainable psychiatry also called trauma informed treatment and Carita Kilpinen illustrates the theories further with animations.
It is no coincidence that Finland is internationally known by its role as a bridge-builder and peacemaker. To our minds, the way the conference was arranged and realised represents the Finnish culture, know-how and social design at its best! This skillful building of cooperation makes one of our best export products, and it is something we are fostering at Peaceful Impact, too.
