'The Manualisation of Persons
The Personalisation of Manuals'
David Millar is a Consultant Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist in the North Essex Partnership (NHS) Trust and Honorary Senior Lecturer in the Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex
Abstract: Mental Health Services are increasingly being depersonalised in a variety of different ways from anonymous internet sites that give formulaic advice to the public to heavily researched treatment manuals that give advice to professionals on how to administer closely defined and proscribed 'therapies'. This paper attempts to look at why such movements are seen as 'progress' and whether and how they should be challenged.
Venue: Room 4N.6.1
Time: 5.00pm – 6:30pm
