MindReading 2020

Now in its fourth year, the very popular narrative medicine symposium, MindReading 2020 returns to Dublin in April 2020 in what promises to be another stimulating and thought-provoking event.

Led by Dr Elizabeth Barrett, UCD Associate Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, this international academic collaboration involves patients, poets, clinicians, literature and medical humanities experts, writers, and experts by experience.  The academic collaboration involves UCD Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, UCD Humanities, the Diseases of Modern Life group at St Anne’s College, University of Oxford, and the Department of English Literature at University of Birmingham.
