Haley Peckham's Keynote - Better Days – Baba Brinkman Lyric Video
At the 23rd Victorian Collaborative Mental Health Nursing Conference (The Collab), Keynote Speaker and CentreMHN team member Dr Haley Peckham presented on Neuroplastic Wrap: The non-pathologising, ecological alternative to diagnostic labels.
Haley discussed mental suffering can often be diagnosed as a psychiatric disorder or pathology, but in many cases, it can also be interpreted as a healthy brain's adaptive "fast life history" response to childhood trauma, which sets up a natural expectation of future adversity. Neuroplasticity and therapy can help the brain to re-learn to expect, and produce, better days.
