This project has been funded by the ESRC. It aims to promote more awareness and thought about the difficulties posed by the set of problems that surround people who have major problems in their lives and their relationships – who are sometimes thought of as having an ‘anti-personality disorder’. The aim of the series is to being together academics, clinicians and service users who have an interest in developing better understandings of these difficulties by putting them within social, cultural, historical as well as psychological contexts. The series is led by Dr David W Jones (Head of Psychosocial Studies; University of East London), Dr Christopher Scanlon (Consultant Psychotherapist in Forensic services with East London and South London and Maudsley Foundation Hospital Trusts) and Professor David Gadd (University of Manchester). The series is organised in collaboration with the Association for Psychosocial Studies.
There will be a number of events over the next three years. You can read more about the series here.
