Mirroring in Life – Mirroring in Groups Event

£15 on Entry – £10 Concessions

London Psychodrama Network Event

Learn some gems about communication and relationships – change your life!

  • Mirroring is happening in everyday life. In our communication with people we are mirrors to each other. In beginning of life mirroring starts with mother and baby and it continues through life. But also our subjective mirrors can be mutually distorted by projections. We have a tendency to project unconsciously our own parts to others. But it can be corrected with feedbacks from other group members – Interpersonal learning. In this psychodrama session we will have the opportunity to explore our mirroring to each other in a group and also in some relationships in our life.

  • The Voice of People with Experience of Schizophrenia or Psychosis

    • We want to hear from people with experience of mental health issues.
      The focus of the work of the Schizophrenia Commission is care, support and treatment for schizophrenia or psychosis.
    • We know psychiatric diagnostics labels are often difficult – because they change, they maybe unhelpful to recovery, they don’t emphasise the full experience of managing serious health problems but tend to focus on problems and symptoms. Individuals manage their distress in many different ways – and we want to hear from you about your experiences.- View the more information regarding this event in the invite flyer CLICK HERE:The Voice of People with Experience of Schizophrenia or Psychosis Invite Flyer

    Carers Privacy & Dignity Focus Group

    SLaM (South London & Maudsley) are currently running a series of Focus Groups in order to highlight issues with Privacy & Dignity within both inpatient and outpatient care spheres.
    To be treated with privacy and dignity can mean many things to different people. Examples of these include, attitudes and behaviours of staff, communication, the environment, privacy to protect peoples modesty, confidentiality, to have nutritional needs met and to be free from abuse.

    • It is often the case that carers know a huge amount about where there are holes in service provision and where problems are to be found, as well how to fix them and improve things!
    • If you are a carer then this focus group is for you or perhaps you know or have a great carer in which case please let them know.View the flyer for this event CLICK HERE:Carers Privacy Dignity Flyer 2012

    Black Dog Tribe – New Social Network for Mental Health.

    Ruby Wax backed online community for mental illness sufferers, Black Dog Tribe, has launched recently!

    Mental illness does stigmatise, but doesn’t discriminate

  • Black Dog Tribe – www.blackdogtribe.com – aims to give the one in four who suffers from poor mental health a voice by bringing them together online. The project has the support of Mind, SANE and several other leading UK mental health charities.
  • After a successful beta launch, in which the site amassed thousands of users as well as a significant number of supporters on Twitter and Facebook, Black Dog Tribe gets had its official launch just a few days ago on Tuesday 28 February 2012.
  • The site offers a platform for those affected by one of the many mental health conditions including depression, Bipolar disorder and Agoraphobia to meet up and share their experiences. It is a place where people can read about mental health issues, share experiences, find like-minded people and friendship and a whole lot more.
  • Take a look at the website by clicking the link above and view the full report regarding this fantastic and innovative project! CLICK HERE: Balck Dog Tribe – Press Release
