Gabriela Dymešová

Psychologist and psychotherapist. In addition to her private practice, she also works at the research agency Kantar CZ.

She is a member of the Rafael Institute, an association of psychotherapists dedicated to trauma therapy. She has dealt with it in many contexts: after the 1997 floods that swept through the Czech Republic, after the war in Bosnia and Kosovo, she has cooperated with NGOs, the Czech Army, and with the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. She is also a lecturer and organises experiential workshops. Together with Michaela Hapalová, she co-directed the Generation THEN project (Generace POTÉ), focusing on individual psychotherapy and transgenerational transmission of trauma. At AFO this year, they organise and run an experiential workshop on transgenerational transmission of trauma.
