In depth, in the field

In depth, in the field

We engage multidimensional approaches, grounded in depth psychology,
to alleviate human suffering in post-conflict
and underserved communities.

At Stillpoint Engage we work to alleviate human suffering through application of depth psychological principles. We do this first by engaging directly with underserved and post-conflict communities, promoting psychological and social support activities, whether inside or outside a formal mental-health context. Second, we facilitate increased psychosocial resiliency for humanitarian aid workers, thereby strengthening the impact of their field work in underserved, post-disaster, and post-conflict communities worldwide. Third, we provide opportunities for  actionable insight into the manifold root causes of human suffering today, through quantitative and qualitative research, curated discussion and debate, and through innovative community and professional education. In all our initiatives, Stillpoint Engage creates opportunities for applying humanistic insight towards individual and community healing in an increasingly unstable world.

What we do

Engage Communities Directly

We engage communities directly first, by listening, and then by co-creating multidimensional psychological and social support activities, whether inside or outside a formal mental-health context.

Support Humanitarian Workers

We support humanitarian workers to strengthen the impact of their contributions by providing a three-part program that includes: preparatory Compassion and Resiliency Training, psychosocial support and stress assessment throughout their time in the field, and optional therapeutic services to facilitate successful re-entry.

Generate Actionable Insights

We provide opportunities for generating actionable insights into the manifold root causes of human suffering today, through quantitative and qualitative research, curated discussion and debate, and through innovative community and professional education.

What Makes Us Unique

Starting with our commitment to empirical realism, we build initiatives of intention and integrity to achieve the most far-reaching, lasting results possible. With the backing of PrairieCare’s hospital and clinic system, its researchers and analysts at the PrairieCare Institute, and its affiliation with the University of MInnesota, maintaining our grounding in the sciences is only natural.

At the same time, we privilege the relevance of the arts and humanities—especially philosophy, critical theory, the social sciences and history—in order to include ethics and beauty in the evaluation of results. Through the Stillpoint Spaces sites across Europe, our network of clinicians, scholars, artists and professionals of all stripes continues to grow. At Stillpoint Engage we weave all these threads together, creating opportunities for individuals and communities to align their core ethical values with their professional, creative, and intellectual interests, to serve and heal us all.

At Stillpoint Engage, we believe that suffering can only be alleviated when human beings truly connect across the many boundaries that too often separate us. Our engagement process is based on respect, collaboration, shared vision, and reflection. We invite you to listen, learn, and partner with us and our diverse constellation of friends, innovators and conscientious leaders. Together we can reimagine our shared future with depth, and humanity.
