Torben Bergland in Dublin West

On the second Sabbath of February, our brother Torben Bergland will come to visit our Dublin West SDA Church.

For those who do not know him, Torben is a psychotherapist, psychiatrist and medical doctor (MD), leading two departments at the Trans-European Division – Health Department and Singles Ministries Department.

We extend an open invitation to all for the morning of 10 February (11am), when Torben will have a traditional Bible sermon, yet one that focuses on mental and relational health, entitled “To Love and Be Loved”. It ties in with the presentation of the afternoon (at 3pm)  “Understanding Attachment”, followed by a Q&A session.

The music of the day will be offered by Home Away group.

Torben Bergland graduated from Medical School at Copenhagen University in 2002. After internships in surgery, medicine and family medicine, he went into psychiatry, and is a trained psychiatrist and psychotherapist. Much of his career he worked at Modum Bad in Norway, a leading hospital in psychotherapy treatment and research, as both psychotherapist and departmental leader. He has primarily worked with patients with depression, anxiety and personality disorders. Since 2015 he has been the Health Ministries director of the Trans-European Division based in St Albans, England.
