Disaster Clinical Program Workshop 
“Agora” 

Agora, originally means a space which the citizens of ancient Greek had placed to discuss important arguments or for markets to commerce and exchanging things. We have been engaging in creating the Agora of our times where citizens living the modern society gather and discuss important issues of our hearts and exchanging energy and information, individual to individual.

In the pre-conference of IADP, hosted in Sendai this March, we held the Agora for disaster victims in East Japan including Miyagi, Fukushima, and Iwate and for supporters from all over the country to let down their psychological burdens and to regain their energies. In the Agora, various workshops took place like shops in a market and the participants were able to choose what they were interested in. We were able to share in the Agora the pain, anxiety, anger, guilty feelings, sense of isolation, grief, love to our loved ones, trust, and the joy of being able to speak of these things. Voices, such as “I was able to cry for the first time after the earthquake”, “It was the first time to speak of the disaster”…were heard. Some were able to touch a part of their self that is different from the usual self and experience the fundamental strength overflowing from the bottom of their hearts. We, by all members of the community, were able to create the time, space and the place for each individual to face the experiences of our own and others’ concerning the disaster.

In this coming congress, as a Disaster Clinical Program, by taking up a whole day we will recreate the Agora with all the participants in a grander size inviting many specialist from inside and outside of our country, including Dr. Bonnie Buchele, who we were able to meet in March. Let us all, who have experienced the Great East Japan Earthquake including citizens and professionals, gather and share our valuable experiences of the earthquake again and fill ourselves up with energy.

Please feel free to join us, inviting the ones you care about. Feel free to bring your children along! We are looking forward to seeing many of you.

The following are time schedule, the leaders and workshops being held.
