new projects in
Sweden and Ireland

We have moved

our headquarters to Sweden, together with much of our research and development. Some of our exciting new projects are located in Ireland.
The reason for this is that all our funding is dependent on the work being undertaken within the European Union.

ground-breaking work

This will be in addition to our innovative and ground-breaking work with large research groups in Bangladesh, India and Nepal.

has developed a new form of treatment called
Story-based Therapy.

It is unique

in that it addresses two major difficulties everyone working in emotional wellbeing encounters: How to stop the person using a programme designed to help them from just getting too bored to continue – and how to help people who have long-held beliefs about how the shape and nature of their life should be to break away from their prejudices and investigate new ways to be alive and be happy.

“This calls for an enormous amount of ‘story’. Yes, the core ingredient of a new therapy called Story-based Therapy is, of course, stories. NISAD has opened a new facility in Dundalk, Ireland to attract, support and nurture “saga”.

It’s a co-operative project by two nations influenced by the Viking and Celtic traditions of story: Ireland and Sweden.”
“NISAD will be running competitions in both Scandinavia and Ireland to attract writing talent to come and work with their clinical programmes.”

Tadhg Ó Séaghdha, Head of Behavioural Psychology at NISAD, said – “Our intention is to provide talented, innovative writers with an income so that they can have the freedom to develop their own projects, whilst getting exciting story-lines that don’t just “hook-in” the users of our programmes, but help them achieve the goals they value most.”
