Lecture in Warsaw
Yesterday, on 9 April, we took place our next lecture in the series "Depression is not a taboo" in the Academy of Finance and Business "Vistula" in Warsaw. A lecture was held by a Wemenders Foundation expert - Sandra Waszniewska, psychologist and therapist. We would like to thank the Academy Vistula for help in organizing the event and thank all participants for the activity and the presence on the lecture.
The series of lectures is a project of the Wemenders Foundation carrying out free open lectures for students and faculty members of universities throughout the country. The program aims at familiarizing young people with the dangerous disease that is depression and improving the competence of researchers in the field of caring for the students' peace of mind. The institutions that will decide to organize a lecture in cooperation with the Foundation, will be awarded a "Sensitive University" certificate.
The lecture on Academy of Finance and Business "Vistula" consisted of theoretical and practical exercises. The audience had a chance to get a basic understanding of depression, recognize the symptoms and the causes of the disease among young people. The practical part included a simulated conversation with the sick person, restating negative thoughts into positive ones, and relaxation exercises.
