Mental disorder and self over time
Tuesday September 1st 2015 (King’s College London)
How does the experience of a severe mental disorder affect an individual’s sense of self and personal identity over the course of time? How does this vary in relation to the particular patterns and course of specific disorders?
The workshop will include 6 sessions, in which clinicians/service users will reflect on these questions in relation to a range of disorders. Each talk will be followed by a short response from a philosophical commentator and a time for group discussion. Our aim is to create an interdisciplinary, collaborative and exploratory atmosphere, bringing together participants from mental health, philosophical and legal backgrounds.
The workshop will run from 10-5:30, with lunch included, and is to be followed by drinks at a nearby venue.
Places at the workshop are limited and so we would be very grateful if you could confirm availability as soon as possible. Replies to firstname.lastname@example.org - please inform us of any special dietary requirements.
