Em. Prof. dr. Peter Adriaenssens, child and youth psychiatrist, adopted a unique and accessible approach to make existing knowledge more tangible. With a lot of compassion and courage, he addressed sensitive issues in his lecture on trauma. This made it possible to see and understand the impact of trauma and violence, and the consequences at mental, physical and emotional level. He did not shy away from subjects such as despair, pain, emptiness, loneliness and parenthood. Peter was also very honest when he answered the many questions from the audience. He offered an insight into roles and patterns that can traumatise victims of violence for many years.

His insight into today's complex task of parenting was very useful.
