Have a listen to Dr Liddell’s recently co-produced episode on All In The Mind.
Huge congratulations to team member Joel, for taking home one of the School of Psychology prizes at the Science Postgraduate Research Competition.
On Wednesday, in collaboration with the UNSW Grand Challenges, we had the pleasure of having Professor Frank Neuner shed light on the importance of understanding and addressing mental health issues in refugees. His treatment approach, Narrative Exposure Therapy, has become a gold standard treatment intervention for survivors of war, torture and natural disasters, and uses storytelling to help survivors process the challenges they have faced. As raised during the talk:
“We need to give the traumatic event a time and place in their [the individual’s] autobiography...to give the individual a voice.”
