After a popular event on the shop floor we are delighted to invite you to join Isabel Clarke via ZOOM to hear about her new book 'Meeting Mental Breakdown Mindfully' exploring the Comprehend, Cope and Connect method. An opportunity for those who could not attend in person (or those who attended and would like to learn more!) to connect virtually.

This book cuts to the heart of the distress that is mental breakdown and makes sense of it in ways that are both simple and profound. Received ideas about what it is to be a single ‘self’ are overturned in order to understand how easy it is for the delicate balance of ‘feeling alright’ to be upset. Medical orthodoxy is set aside to reach a simpler, more compassionate and holistic approach to both sense making and helping. The book covers how the approach is used in the NHS, where it has been embraced as both effective and practical, within services as diverse as the acute hospital and primary care. The book is aimed at those supporting sufferers, whether in a professional or personal capacity, and is relevant to those going through the experience themselves.

Isabel Clarke is a consultant clinical psychologist with 30 years’ experience as a therapist in the NHS for people with complex problems. Her innovative approach to mental health that side-steps diagnosis is applied widely in Acute Services to enable mental health hospitals to operate in a more psychologically informed and holistic way, and is adapted for IAPT (Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies) and cross-cultural application. She has a particular interest in the psychology of spirituality, and psychosis and spirituality
