New collaborations in an outstanding event
By Samanta Quinlan,Director ICAAD.
We couldn’t be happier with the amazing turnout, depth and breadth of the presentations, panels and workshops at our very first iCAAD Amsterdam. The feedback has been amazing, thank you to each and every one of our participants.
It’s hard to explain in words how the progression of the day joined more and more dots together as it went along, how each presentation grew from the previous one and added to the continuously growing theme.
How Dr Constant Mouton’s excellent opening keynote on co-occuring disorders was built upon with Dr Jules Tielens truly eye-opening presentation on psychosis, which also included a good portion of his own experiences.
From Dr Tielens own experiences the panellists and afternoon facilitators were then willing to open up and make themselves real, vulnerable people to the participants, rather than just expert panellists or teachers, opening the up day in a million more ways, making it a truly participatory event.
