If you watched my TEDx talk then you might be interested to know that for the past nine years I have been working on a feature length documentary on depression and trauma, approaching the topic as a psychologist, and using my self as a case study. I refer to a wide range of personal issues, and the various approaches that I have applied on myself over a period of over 30 years. I am now at final stages of editing.
I’m also aiming to start creating videos where I expand on the various approaches I mention in the documentary. My hope is to create a resource for those who are struggling with depression. I’ll upload the videos to Youtube and also attach links on this website. You are welcome to e-mail me with suggestions or interest in any particular areas.
Once my film is finished (in a month?), I’m aiming to send it to film festivals. I’m currently trying figure what is the best way to do this. I have funded the film myself and I have no experience in post production, so if anybody has suggestions or ideas, please e-mail me: [email protected]
The first four years of my life were mainly in Brazil, then in Lebanon during the civil war. In 1985 I emigrated to Ireland and enrolled in Trinity College Dublin. In 1994 I graduated with three Masters in Psychology. As a counselling psychologist (therapist), I worked for four and a half years years in the area of sexual abuse; adults who have been abused in childhood, and adolescents who have abused younger children. Then I worked with refugees, most of whom have been tortured in their country of origin. My last official psychology position was working in nine different inner city Dublin schools - that was in the summer of 2003.
