    The new politics of experience and the bitter herbs: new book from PCSS Books

    Posted by Jill Anderson on October 30, 2014 at 11:00 0 Comments

    A lot of what is done in the name of psychotherapy and psychology is driven by motives which are base, shallow and commercial. Theorising of the human condition too often follows the ideological fashions of the day, which can be described as biological/corporate fundamentalism. This toxic mixture not only mystifies the general public but also makes epistemological slaves of professional psychologists.  As neoliberal capitalism continues its forward march, this book considers its influence on…

    Poverty Look Up Tool

    Posted by Jill Anderson on October 30, 2014 at 10:49 0 Comments

    Another useful  aid for use in teaching?

    When you think about the parish you live in, does it feel quite deprived, fairly wealthy, or somewhere in the middle?

    We live in one of the most unequal countries in the western world, where babies born within a few miles of one another can have widely differing life expectancies – of 10 years or more.

    How do we feel about these vast differences in life chances and what can churches do to help bridge the gap?

    The dual lives of people living with mental health problems: photographic project

    Posted by Jill Anderson on October 30, 2014 at 10:47 0 Comments

    In 2013, Liz Obert decided to begin a series of photographs that dealt with the realities of what it means to put on a brave face while simultaneously coping with forms of depression. Starting with herself, Obert took two photos: one that showed the person she chooses to present to the world, and a second portrait that presented an image of how she existed behind closed doors when feeling depressed.

    New and emerging research on the history and geography of Scottish ‘madness’, asylums and psychiatry: Call for papers

    Posted by Jill Anderson on October 21, 2014 at 12:42 0 Comments

    Notwithstanding notable contributions from scholars such as Jonathan Andrews, Mike Barfoot, Alan Beveridge, Gayle Davies, Rab Houston, Gavin Miller, Iain Smith and others, it arguably remains the case that Scottish psychiatry has tended to be the ‘Cinderella’ in the existing historiography of British psychiatry. While the journal History of Psychiatry has carried ‘country reports’ on both the historiography of and substantive histories of psychiatry (expansively understood) in…
