The School of Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences is proud to launch an exciting series of public lectures, workshops and panel discussions entitled Conversations about Mental Health and the World We Live In.
Together with a number of internationally renowned external speakers, national charity leaders, and experts by experience, mental health experts at Kingston University will engage in a series of discussions and workshops on the topic of mental ill health and wellness.
The topics will range from understanding the causes and proposing solutions to the mental health crisis of our time, examining well-being of young people and carers, whether our modern-life work is detrimental to our well-being, how religious communities are engaging with the topic of mental ill health and the impact of the Brexit crisis on psychological well-being.
This Conversation is entitled Where do I belong? Identity caught between EU and Brexit and will be chaired by Dr Willem Spanjers from the Department of Economics.
We are pleased to host Professor Emmy van Deurzen, a philosopher and existential psychotherapist who is also a counselling psychologist. She directs her private practice Dilemma Consultancy in London and is also Principal of the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling at the Existential Academy in London, both of which she founded with Prof. Digby Tantam in 1996. She is a Visiting Professor with Middlesex University, for whom she directs several doctoral and masters programmes. She has published fifteen books on existential therapy and the challenges of the human condition. Several of her texts are in their second or third editions. Her pioneering work has been translated into well over a dozen languages and she has lectured worldwide in more than thirty five countries on all continents and she read her essay ‘Becoming an Existential Therapist' on BBC Radio 3.
