Henk Breugem, Netherlands in cooperation with Dan Dolberger, Israel

Therapy can induce many changes in people’s lives, but not the very motivation to begin therapy. That is a significant fact in a world where more than one half of the global population suffering from a major psychiatric disorders go untreated. Can NVR help? In this workshop we interview our client, the mother of a 30 year old man who spent the past 10 years enclosed in a room. Together with her we will narrate 24 months of NVR and Family therapy in conditions of high suicide risk, thin support, and lack of cooperation on the identified patient’s part. We will also discuss NVR as a groundbreaking therapeutic setting, which transforms the IP’s absence from obstacle to advantage.
