Thursday, 17 October 2013 08:20

The seminar "Trauma in the Process of Reconciliation II" was organized by HCO "Bread of St. Anthony" in hotel Hollywood, Ilidža, from 9 to 11 October. KULT's scholarship holder participated in this seminar, joining other young people from various colleges, who previously participated in basic seminars organized in several BiH towns, alongside professionals who work in educational institutions.

The participants had a chance to revise their knowledge previously acquired at the basic seminars, but also to learn new and interesting facts. Mirjana Ostojić, psychologist, joined by Davor Majstorović, Centre host, worked with the participants on exploring World War II narratives, focusing on regional narrative specifically, and finally handing the participants an assignment to write a collective narrative for all BiH peoples. 

 

The second day of the seminar was marked by prof. Predrag Tuce's presentation of a new theory and the psychotherapy which he developed himself (The Theory of Identity and the Psychotherpy of Identity). The participants had a chance to ask questions, discuss with the professor certain aspects of the theory and examine how it fits the Bosnian post-war society. 

On the final day of the seminar, Mirjana Brajković, psychologist, gestalt psychotherapist and family therapist,  presented the topic of Grieving, the process it represents, what it requires of an individual and the society, and how in can be overcome successfully. 

The participants commented that the seminar helped them develop a new perspective of themselves and others. They also emphasized that it presented a rare opportunity for them to explore themselves and compare their personal views with those of others concerning the issue of reconciliation. Some participants discussed the issue What is our trauma and where are we imprisoned. They concluded that the answer to this question presents the key to building true peace in this region.

This seminar was especially useful for young people, who need to find ways of dealing with the trauma experienced during the recent war and who need to learn how to move on to build a better and brighter future. The seminar was a great opportunity for young people to develop a more positive opinion about psychology and psychological counseling, but also to reduce the stigma attached to this social field.
