Mind Reading: The Role of Narrative in Mental Health

//Mind Reading: The Role of Narrative in Mental Health

Mind Reading: The Role of Narrative in Mental Health

18th-19th June 2018

University of Birmingham

Do clinicians and patients speak the same language? How might we bridge the evident gaps in communication? How can we use narrative to foster clinical relationships? Or to care for the carers?

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS: Dame Professor Sue Bailey, Professor Sally Shuttleworth (Oxford), Professor Femi Oyebode (Birmingham), Professor Brendan Drumm (UCD), and Professor Chris Fitzpatrick (UCD)

This two-day programme of talks and workshops is a collaboration between the University of Birmingham, UCD Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and the Diseases of Modern Life and Constructing Scientific Communities Projects at St Anne’s College, Oxford. Together we seek to explore productive interactions between narrative and mental health both historically and in the present day.

Bringing together psychologists, psychiatrists, GPs, service users, and historians of literature and medicine, we will investigate the patient experience through the prism of literature and personal narrative to inform patient-centred care and practice, and focus on ways in which literature might be beneficial in cases of burnout and sympathy fatigue.

A draft programme and link to our online registration site is available here.
