1. A historical analysis of our understanding of the mind: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and...
What happens when people change their minds? In this lecture, I will offer a historical perspective on changing minds, starting with a discussion of the role of medicine in changing minds. I will discuss the move from changing behaviour to changing thinking, and changing stories; and how modern mental health services use such ideas.
2. Professor Gwen Adshead explores how psychological therapy affects the mind and its implication on mental development http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and... I
n this talk, I will discuss what happens when minds change, drawing on evidence from neuroscience and research into psychological therapy. I will discuss mentalisation: the process whereby humans learn to read others intentions, and explore how that can fail. I will discuss research into mindfulness practice, and the implications for mental development.
3. Professor Gwen Adshead looks at the risk factors and the common types of violence, within the context of treatment and therapy issues http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and...
In this talk, I explore the ethical issues that arise when people seek to change their minds. I discuss the political aspects of changing minds; the use of stories and media to create a change. I focus my talk on the process of changing "bad" minds into "better" minds, and the question of whether there is a duty to try and change people's minds when they have offended. I will ask if there is a right to be left alone to make bad choices, using examples from mental health case law.
