Re-Imagining Mental Health Nursing into the 21st Century: Exploring our role supporting people with psychosis

Re-imagining Mental Health Nursing into the 21st Century:

Exploring our role supporting people with psychosis

Thursday, September 24th 2015 @ Amnesty International, 17-25 New Inn Yard, London, EC2A 3EA

A conference for students of mental health nursing, practitioners, educators, managers, commissioners, carers, service users and other members of the multidisciplinary team.

Contributors: Steve Trenchard, Catherine Gamble, Lou Hamilton & Mark Earl

Keynotes:

  • ‘The culture of nursing, compassionate care systems and psychosis’
  • Capitalising on the contribution of mental health nurses in psychosocial intervention implementation’
  • ‘Collaboration’

There are increasing calls for a paradigm shift in the way we deliver care for those who experience psychosis – moving from medical model understandings and treatment to a formulation based approach that draws on the individual’s lived experience.  Such a shift is a challenge, requiring a willingness to respect, attend to, explore and respond empathetically to the narrative of the carer and service user.

This conference will provide an opportunity to explore these challenges and identify the implications for mental health nursing practice in collaboration with our multi-disciplinary teams, service users and carers.

Combining keynote presentations with opportunities for group discussion, we hope to highlight the ‘lived experience’ of mental health nursing, with an emphasis on capturing the current reality for nurses in practice and exploring our evolving role and opportunities for future directions.

Psychosis and
the Arts
Thursday 27th March, 2014

Speakers include: Bobby Baker, Martin Gayford, David Bell,
Wiebke Trunk, Nanna Luth & Meg Harris-Williams
FIND OUT MORE: WWW.ISPSUK.ORG | ADMIN@ISPSUK.ORG
The use of the arts in personalised recovery journeys, as well as in psychological treatment
approaches to working with psychosis, is well known in contemporary mental health practice.
In this one-day conference supported by Tate Modern, clinical and non-clinical speakers will
come together in encouraging dialogue and dispelling some of the myths that persist in
the field of psychosis and the arts, including Van Gogh’s ear.
Confirmed speakers include the acclaimed visual and performance artist Bobby
Baker, the award-winning writer Martin Gayford, the psychoanalyst David Bell and the
psychoanalytically-informed arts scholar Meg Harris-Williams, together with arts therapists,
service users, their family and friends and other specialists working with psychosis.
International gallery curators Wiebke Trunk and Nanna Luth and educators in the medical
humanities will provide a new lens through which ways of approaching the urgent UK
agenda of compassionate care can be looked at in the context of the wider contribution of the
arts for enhancing empathic mental health care.
