Courses and lectures

​Several of CNDR employees also participate actively in various events, for example at patient organizations and Folkeuniversitetet. In addition, CNDR also arranges courses in collaboration with other research units and psychiatric centers.

​Insight into psychiatry: Depression

Folkeuniversitetet holds a series of lectures on psychiatry, where the last lecture is held on 07.10.2019 at 19:45 pm and at is about depression. It will be PhD student Mette Marie Støttrup from CNDR who i holding the lecture that evening.

Many people comes in contact with the psychiatric treatment system, personally or through relatives and friends. About 300,000 Danes are currently in treatment with 'happiness pills' against depression, and it is estimated that approx. every fifth Dane at some point in life is affected by an anxiety state. Nevertheless, there are still many taboos and myths about mental illness and psychiatric treatment. In recent years, significant progress has been made in understanding the cause of mental disorders, and the possibilities for treatment and prevention have become much better. The lectures go through a number of mental disorders and treatment methods.

Psychiatry Day 2019 - Depression

Again this year, the psychiatry days come to Copenhagen and Vejle. This year's theme is depression. Depression is often referred to as the new public disease in Denmark.

Skilled professionals will tell you about the different types of depression - and when you are just plain sad and when you have a real depression.

In Copenhagen, the Psychiatry Days will be held on the 8th and 9th of May from 9 am to 4 pm at Copenhagen University College. May 8 at. 9.40 am, CNDR's PhD student Krzysztof Gby will give a presentation on The different faces of the Depression.

CPH:SCIENCE Hunting for Hedonia​

How far should – and would – we go in modulating our emotions and personal characteristics? If pleasure is just the push of a button away, will you want to push it? These are just some of the questions being raised, when CPH:DOX launch this year’s CPH:SCIENCE programme with the World Premiere of ‘Hunting for Hedonia’ by Pernille Rose Grønkjær on March 22 at Bremen Teater.

After the film screening, Pernille Rose Grønkjær, science journalist Lone Frank and Philosopher Klemens Kappel and Professor Poul Videbech will twist and turn questions raised in the film.

‘Hunting for Hedonia’
‘Hunting for Hedonia’ contrasts history and present developments to examine and elucidate where Deep Brain Stimulation is going. Will this promising technology change psychiatry? And will the nifty electrodes move on from correcting abnormal activity in disease to perhaps ‘correcting’ unwanted but in fact normal activity? In other words: how far should – and would – we go in modulating our emotions and personal characteristics? If pleasure is just the push of a button away, will you want to push it?
