9th Annual Keele Counselling Psychology Conference, 21st - 22nd March 2015


Theme: Redefining Mental Illness (Conference Flyer)

Following the release of the BPS publication "Understanding Schizophrenia and Psychosis", traditional dividing lines between “illness” and “normal experience” are, once again, being questioned.
Taking this as our starting point, the 9th Annual Keele Counselling Conference gathered together a dynamic, interdisciplinary range of opinion and experience on the central issue of how we see and treat “mental illness” generally, and how this may be redefined as a complex and individual response to life experiences, such as loss, trauma, abuse and deprivation.
