Next week I am presenting FACE IT project at the 2016 International RANZCP Congress of Psychiatry happening in Hong Kong. How it came about? Psychiatrist Branka Mijatovic saw my project and she found it fascinating how fast people identify their values and the correlation between the answers and cognitive-behavioral therapies such as ACT and DBT, so she invited me to present the project with her.
I intend to present my experience of talking to strangers about their personal life. How the project started, why this question and my findings. The fascinating fact that as the pace of our lives becomes faster and faster our need to connect and be heard is stronger than ever. Yet we seldom share our vulnerabilities and put our guards down. When I ask people 'What do you wish you knew when you were younger?' it often ends up in a conversation that lasts for hours.
I am so excited and grateful for this opportunity!
