Areas of interest and expertise
I am currently the Field Lead for Pre-Registration Mental Health Nursing at the University of Bradford and the Programme Lead for Psychological Therapies for Post-Registration Professionals.

I am currently pursuing a doctorate in ethnographic research around narratives of people with 'severe mental health difficulties' - the topic area is currently in progress.

I am also currently involved in qualitative research into experiences of barriers to accessing support and care for people with mental health difficulties as part of an Urban Living Programme Bid.

I am a member of the International Advisory Group on the BHIRCH project (Better Health in Care Homes) currently exploring how care homes can promote better health for people with dementia.

I've recently published a book on Recovering from Psychosis: Empirical Evidence and Lived Experience with Routledge. http://www.routledge.com/catalogs/nursing_midwifery_and_health1/1/9/

I've also co-written a chapter in Torn and Greasley's Psychology for Nurses on 'Altered Mental States' For Polity Press.

I'm now working on some writing projects around Stigma and Othering, and Critical Mental Health Nursing: Exploring Recovery that are in their early stages and welcome potential collaborators from all backgrounds.

My key interests are developing critical recovery oriented approaches, narrative competency, and psychological therapies.

This event titled, ‘Mental Health and Neoliberalism’, sought to situate the growing…

Afflicted: how vulnerability can heal medical education and practice

Posted by Jill Anderson on February 7, 2018 at 22:47 0 Comments

In Afflicted, Nicole Piemonte examines the preoccupation in medicine with cure over care, arguing that the traditional focus on biological intervention keeps medicine from addressing the complex realities of patient suffering.

Piemonte fills that gap, examining why it is that…
