Event description

Description

Viewpoint in partnership with the UoH (School of Health & Social work) are delighted to invite Dr Lucy Johstone (a clinical psychologist, writer, trainer and speaker) to come to Hertfordshire to speak about critical perspectives on 'Personality Disorder'.

Dr Johnstone is currently convening a group of leading UK clinical psychologists and mental health experts who are working to develop an evidence-based and conceptually coherent alternative to the current diagnostic systems.

Lucy will present alternatives to diagnosis which can help people to make sense of experiences of distress, however extreme, and which are based on working together to explore personal meaning.

She writes a blog Lucy Johnstone #FBPE and is author of two books 'A Straight Talking Introduction to Psychiatric Diagnosis' and 'Users and Abusers of Psychiatry: A critical look at Psychiatric practice.'

This is a free event and will be of interested to student nurses, social workers and clinical psychology students plus mental health professionals, service users and carers.

Places are limited so book now to secure a place.

DO NOT PARK ON SITE. Please use the Park and Ride as there is not enough parking space at College Lane. There is a cost of £1 for this. http://www.herts.ac.uk/contact-us/parking/park-and-ride (AL10 8HS)
