Enhancing learning and teaching about mental health across the disciplines
This Medical Humanities Special Issue critiques and reflects on narrative practices around medical, psychiatric and trauma care. This introductory article explores the affordances of patient experience narratives and scenarios to illuminate lives interrupted by medical and psychological crises while raising questions about the medical ethics, epistemological frameworks and potential pathologising of diagnosing complex conditions. It discusses the problematics and ethics of ‘re-presenting’ trauma in art, photography, film or music and the potential for theatre to raise difficult issues in and beyond medical training.
