MindReading 2020

Adolescent Perspectives in Clinical Practice     

Friday 3rd April 2020, RCPI, Kildare Street


This interdisciplinary event seeks to explore productive interactions between literature and clinicians in physical and mental health. Participants from interprofessional backgrounds explore together the interfaces between literature and health in adolescence. At previous events, participants have shared useful resources, and engaged in critical discussion about literature as a point of therapeutic engagement and a tool in clinical and reflective practice.

We welcome poster submissions from colleagues in clinical practice, the history of medicine, and the arts and humanities for an interdisciplinary conference exploring the role of humanities and medicine in adolescent health at the Royal College of Physicians in Ireland on Friday 3rd April 2020.  Accepted posters will be displayed on poster boards.
