This programme includes a four-year seminar series that will explore and develop the growing interest and emerging evidence that a broader bio/psycho/social approach may yield benefits in severe and enduring mental illness (often abbreviated to ‘SMI’) and identify ways to moves this potential towards public mental health as an evidence-based intervention for SMI.
This first two hour webinar is hosted by the Collaborating Centre for Values Based Practice in Health and Social Care - St Catherine's College Oxford. The webinar will centre on the diagnosis of personality disorder. There are two factors that make this an interesting starting point for pushing boundaries in public mental health:
1. It’s a tricky one! - It raises a number of fundamental questions on the nature of self, identity, the relationships between people and themselves and each other.
2. There is little consensus or orthodoxy. - We can focus our efforts on developing a constructive new approach rather than dismantling rigid but flawed established traditions.
