Owen Fitzpatrick on How to Win the War in Your Head

In this age of propaganda, we find ourselves influenced not only by the voices of traditional and social media, but by our own inner voices. In this unique piece blending science and spoken word poetry, Psychologist and Performance Poet, Owen Fitzpatrick, shares his own journey through depression and low self-esteem. He describes the key to taking back control of our minds and winning the war in our heads.

Owen Fitzpatrick is a globetrotting psychologist from Dublin, Ireland and Mental Ideas Resident Artist. He has travelled to more than 92 countries and delivered talks and courses in more than 27 countries helping them to understand more about how their brain works.

Owen has a masters in Applied Psychology, had his own TV show on RTE ONE for a couple of years, and has spoken on stage with the likes of Sir Richard Branson, Seth Godin and Dr Richard Bandler. He has presented lectures and talks in University College Cork, Trinity College Dublin and the Michael Smurfit Business School. Having travelled extensively to countries such as North Korea, Rwanda and Afghanistan for his research, Owen is fascinated by how propaganda, storytelling and influence works.

Co-founder of the Irish Institute of NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), Owen has spent many years working as a therapist and corporate trainer. A trained actor and screenwriter, he specializes in the power of stories as a tool to influence. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format, but independently organized by a local community.
