What they say
The training on trauma-focused CBT opened my eyes to a new world. In the course of the two-year training I gradually began to see that there is much I can do for many of the patients I previously felt were beyond my help. The therapeutic techniques and approaches seeped into other therapies I gave, which are not PTSD-related. I think my patients benefited from this, but I did, too, as their therapist.
After participating in the Ethiopian documentation project I really feel that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and that I do not suffer alone.
Peace of Mind provided a place where I was listened to, but also a place where it was okay for me to talk about my experience – not as a hero, but as a boy who was afraid.
My life was saved twice. Once by the doctors who operated me in the hospital, following the attack at Cafe Moment in 2002. This saved my physically. But after this, I was vulnerable and above all, I was depressed. The physical wounds heal quickly, but the mental trauma takes longer to overcome, when it heals at all. The second time my life was saved was by Joel Wardi. He saved my life because he took me out of my home, he took me out of this past experience and showed me the future. Showed me how to deal with my depression and pointed me in a positive and new direction. He is the one that saved my real life, and my soul.
