Le rôle du récit dans l'expérience de la maladie

Mind Reading: the Role of Narrative in Physical and Mental Health and the Experience of Illness

Workshops and Talks

18th-19th June 2018 
University of Birmingham 

Do clinicians and patients speak the same language? How might we bridge the evident gaps in communication? How can we use narrative to foster clinical relationships? Or to care for the carers? How does illness impact upon our sense of self? 

This two-day programme of talks and workshops is a collaboration between the University of Birmingham, UCD Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and the Diseases of Modern Life and Constructing Scientific Communities Projects at St Anne’s College, Oxford. Together we seek to explore productive interactions between narrative and mental health both historically and in the present day. Bringing together psychologists, psychiatrists, GPs, service users, and historians of literature and medicine, we will investigate the patient experience through the prism of literature and personal narrative to inform patient-centred care and practice, and focus on ways in which literature might be beneficial in cases of burnout and sympathy fatigue.

WORKSHOP A From Greek Tragedy to Twitter: Understanding Doctors’ Vulnerability 
Dr Katherine Furman (UCC) and Dr Elizabeth Barrett (UCD) 

This workshop will explore whether clinicians are uniquely vulnerable, from both a clinical and an academic perspective, and what this means for practice. From a philosophical perspective, Dr Furman will explore the concepts of Eudemonia (flourishing) and Vulnerability. Dr Barrett will look at how medical practitioners use language, the topical theme of Burnout, and concepts of narrative interventions – such as Schwartz rounds and Balint groups – and explore both systematic and individual approaches to this. 

WORKSHOP B Alternative Endings: Narrating Closure Without Cure 
Dr Hosanna Krienke (University of Oxford) 

This session will invite participants to analyse how common cultural metaphors for illness (such as calling it a 'journey' or 'battle') create narrative expectations about the kinds of resolution or closure available to a patient. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to both analyse common metaphors for illness and offer their own alternative images for successful intervention.

WORKSHOP D Analysing Medical Narratives 
Dr Melissa Dickson (University of Birmingham) 

Are the literary critic’s skills in close-reading and analysing narrative of any use to the medical profession? This workshop addresses the roles that literature might play in the history of medicine, as well as in contemporary medical training and practice. Examples from nineteenth-century fiction will be considered alongside medical writings of the same period in terms of the conditions they represent, their roles as metaphors and literary symbols, and the potential insights they provide into the patient experience and perspective.

REFOCUS (Recovery Experience Forum of Carers and Users of Services) is made up of people with experience of the mental health services – patients/service users, family members/carers, and psychiatrists. The Committee’s role is to inform and influence all aspects of the College of Psychiatrists of Ireland business objectives particularly the training experience of young future psychiatrists and identifying ways to improve the mental health services with psychiatrist members. In this session, chaired by Psychiatrist Dr Anne Jeffers, members will read from their own and others literature and explore how literature and the writing of memoirs has supported their Recovery in living with mental illness. 

As one member puts it: ‘For me memoir writing has been a cathartic and an emotional experience. It helped me to reflect on my learning and identify important stages in my recovery process. Reflecting on my experiences has also helped to consolidate my recovery’.
