Film screening with Jaan Toomik “From severe experiences to post-traumatic stress disorder”
Thursday, 10.02.2021 at 7 p.m.
The film screening is part of an art exhibition and a series of events entitled Treatment of Diseases. Checked.
In the works created for this exhibition, the artists depict their private experiences and mental challenges, expressing their ways of coping and adaptability. However, the exhibition goes even further than impression and assumption, allowing artists to reveal personal psychological challenges and the background of creation even more privately in video interviews. We turn an art hall into a psychotherapy session or, as Ülo Kiple said, a “madhouse”.
The artist Jaan Toomik and the clinical psychologist and psychotherapist Katri-Evelin Kalaus and the psychiatrist Katrin Orav (Center for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy SENSUS) will talk.
Traumas happen to even the most beautiful of us. Accidents, serious illness, departure or the loss of a loved one are very traumatic experiences, but none of us have experienced them in our lives. Why do some people get over them more easily and some develop post-traumatic stress disorder? We watch films made from Jaan Toomik’s personal traumatic experiences and discuss strategies for dealing with traumas. How creation helps to expose the experience of trauma, to overcome trauma, to prepare for future failures…
