Religious Language and Mental Ill Health

May 4, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Religious, spiritual and supernatural preoccupations are commonly associated with mental health problems labelled as psychosis. This phenomenon, and the persistence of such concerns generally, which apparently fly in the face of science and reason, can be viewed
through the lens of human beings having access to two complementary but incompatible ways of knowing, arising from the way our brains are organized.

Isabel Clarke will introduce this perspective and its implications for understanding both psychosis and human grasp of reality.

Isabel is a consultant clinical psychologist with over 25 years’ experience working as a therapist in the NHS with people with complex problems. She has developed a trans-diagnostic, trauma-informed, formulation based approach, Comprehend, Cope and Connect (CCC), which has been applied in acute services and beyond, enabling individuals to be understood at an emotional, felt sense, level and also enabling teams to work psychologically.

Psychosis and spirituality, and the psychology of spirituality are further areas of Isabel’s specialism.
