Next online IoPT Café meeting April 30th 2024

Warm welcome in the online IoPT Café. This initiative is started to offer a place where we can meet each other and where we can invite people who are interested in IoPT, who are curious about healing from trauma and who feel an inner wish to join the meeting. Every meeting has an IoPT-related topic.

It is my deepest wish to offer a place where you can engage as much or as little as feels right for you and where you have an opportunity to connect and get inspired.

In the next online IoPT Cafe Irene Standnes will give a presentation about Emotional Violence, Victim-Perpetrator dynamic. This meeting is scheduled on Tuesday April 30th, 2024, from 3 pm CEST/Amsterdam time to 5 pm CEST. The zoom room opens at 2.45 pm CET.
