The walls within: working with defenses against otherness

Online Conference 5-11 July 2021

European Regional Meeting (online with Il Nodo Group, Italy) February 2023


Publisher Location:

In partnership with Il Nodo Group Impresa Sociale present:


3rd, 4th and 6th of February 2023
5pm-8pm CET (online event)

Keynote Speakers: Mario Perini, Richard Morgan-Jones, Franca Fubini

We are living in a traumatic time on a global level: climate change, the continuing pandemic and its after-effects, and wars and nuclear threats all have a deep impact on both conscious and unconscious levels.

Alongside attempts at resilience, trauma also continues to manifest and assert itself in many new ways.
Which forms of dialogue and sharing of ideas create sustainable regeneration beyond resilience?

We invite you to attend this experiential regional event to explore these questions, attempting to make sense of traumatic events, find new meanings, and regenerate thoughts and actions.
