    Mindfulness in health and education

    Posted by Jill Anderson on December 12, 2014 at 12:35 0 Comments

    A recent report by the New Economics Foundation concludes that: mindfulness has significant potential to improve wellbeing and save public money. A key first step for unlocking this potential is to train health and education professionals (doctors, nurses, teachers) in mindfulness.

The project brings together 4 Trusts from around the country and starts with a one year training, which was launched in October 2014.

    Posted by Jill Anderson on December 3, 2014 at 22:00 0 Comments

    Moccasin Bend is a river peninsula in Chattanooga Tennessee where stands a state psychiatric institution. Timothy Kelly was a patient there in 1997, and brought the stories of his mother who had been a patient in 1967. He later learned that land use on Moccasin Bend has been fiercely contested for decades. This project engages his experience at Moccasin Bend in the context of both family and broader cultural narratives.…

    Understanding Psychosis and Schizophrenia: Published today

    Posted by Jill Anderson on November 27, 2014 at 19:30 0 Comments

    A report by the BPS Division of Clinical Psychology.  Edited by Anne Cooke.

    This report provides an overview of the current state of knowledge about why some people hear voices, experience paranoia or have other experiences seen as ‘psychosis’. It also describes what can help. In clinical language, the report concerns the ‘causes and treatment of schizophrenia and other psychoses’. A parallel report is available entitled Understanding Bipolar Disorder – Why People Experience Extreme…

    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.

    A useful trigger for discussion in teaching sessions?…
