Asa nilsonne power point presentation iCAAD Stockholm

  1. 1. BUILDING SKILLS FOR LIFE AND RECOVERY Åsa Nilsonne Psychiatrist, psychotherapist, professor emeritus
  2. 2. MACHIAVELLI (1469-1527) ON CHANGE: It ought to be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things. Because the innovator has for enemies all those who have done well under the old conditions, and lukewarm defenders in those who may do well under the new.
  3. 3. QUOTE FROM A PRACTITIONER ”When you get people off their medication, you have to give them the skills they lacked in the first place”.
  4. 4. THREE CHALLENGES Gaining a better understanding of our emotions, and emotion regulation skills Helping health professionals understand the difference between an unhappy/frightened person and a person with depression or anxiety disorder, especially when that person is young Understanding the effects of trauma on subsequent coping strategies and emotional development
  5. 5. HIPPOCAMPUS The left hippocampus is one of the areas of the brain that seems to be affected by trauma.
  6. 6. TRAUMA Trauma has been shown to be associated with ADHD, auditory hallucinations/hearing voices, depression, anxiety, psychogenic nonepileptic seizures, personality disorders, eating disorders, illicit substance use, alcohol use disorder and other psychiatric conditions.
  7. 7. LIFE SKILLS Being able to adjust your behaviour to the situation you are in in, a way that leads you closer to your desired goals.
  8. 8. I BELIEVE THAT We need to understand the consequences of traumatic/adverse life events, and how to give relevant support and help. Universal prevention efforts should begin early in life, and not be targeted at specific disorders.
  9. 9. LET US MAKE PSYCHIATRIC CARE GREAT (AGAIN)!
