Since 2019 the co-Founders of Sharpen Minds, Robyn Hussa Farrell and Tim Farrell have been co-Directing a feature documentary film on the topic of childhood trauma in collaboration with Dr. Timothy Brewerton. We are proud to announce that Sylvia The Wood Nymph documentary film will be featured at the 2023 American Psychiatric Association Annual Conference in San Francisco.
Sylvia The Wood Nymph is the true story of a woman who struggled with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) which she experienced as a result of considerable early childhood maltreatment.
This film takes an intimate and personal look at her journey toward healing through the eyes of a compassionate psychiatrist, her close friends, and her husband. Notably, the film contains rarely seen footage of altered personalities in Sylvia’s therapy sessions, video testimony and writings, used with her permission. It features the nation's experts in childhood trauma including:
BETHANY BRAND, PH.D.
TIMOTHY D. BREWERTON, M.D.
ROBERT M. POST, M.D.
FRANK W. PUTNAM, M.D.
RICHARD J. LOEWENSTEIN, M.D.
Individuals and organizations can donate to support the project through the nonprofit agency, The Film Collaborative. More information is available at: https://lnkd.in/dNtFzGJ9
