Updated: Sep 24

Recording available


Dear CCH Friends, dear Humanitarian Workers,


We would like to thank you for your attendance to our last Humani-Topic on Wednesday 23 June from 6-8pm (CET) on the topic of PTSD and Reconsolidation Therapy.


Who is our expert speaker Pr. Alain Brunet?

A vocational vocation born out of a traumatic experience...


Alain Brunet's scientific vocation is no accident. He was a student at the University of Montreal in 1989 at the time of the worst massacre in the history of Quebec. A student entered the university heavily armed, killed 14 women and wounded 14 others, in the name of his hatred of feminism.

This dramatic event highlighted the lack of knowledge and the improvisation of the public authorities in the management of the crisis and the care of victimes of psychotraumatic disorders.

Deeply affected, he decided to focus his scientific work for a PhD in the field of post-traumatic stress.


Are bad memories forever hardwired into our brain?

Neuroplasticity teaches us that this is not the case. There exist an evidence-based approach for gradually decreasing the strength of an emotional memory.


In this webinar, Pr. Alain Brunet offered insights on how Reconsolidation Therapy is changing the way we treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).


He covered the following elements:

  • Current treatment for PTSD

  • The discovery of reconsolidation

  • Reconsolidation Therapy: offering new hope to trauma survivors


The video of the webinar is now available as well as the presentation shared by Pr. Brunet.
