Mad Studies 10 July 2024

(Lived Experience Practitioner Focus)

  • From 1 British pound
  • Zoom

Service Description

The first Thursday of the month falls on 4 July, UK Election Day, so Mad Studies is now postponed til next the following week, Weds 10 July. Sadly Thursday that week isn't possible for me to facilitate. Our reading this month is a paper focussing on a topic that Lived Experience Professionals have been advocating for a long time and that we have discussed many times: Discipline specific supervision. The paper is particularly exciting because it is from a PhD which is done by and focusses on LXP researchers. It is part of the work done by Dr Veenu Gupta, who has recently successfully defended (or, passed!) her PhD. Although it is an academic paper, please do not be put off, there is a plain English summary at the beginning, and the discussion on the day covers the paper's content. This paper specifically relates to Lived Experience Researchers, and identifies the priories as by them regarding supervision. The paper is called 'Identifying the priorities for supervision by lived experience researchers: a Q sort study.' written by Veenu Gupta, Catrin Eames, Alison Bryant, Beth Greenhill, Laura Golding, Jennifer Day, Peter Fisher. You can read the paper here: Reading TBC - please check back closer to the date, you will also receive a newsletter later with the details of the reading once you have booked. Mad Studies has always been free - if you would like to attend for free, please select 'Pay in Person'. The costs for the site, marketing and Zoom hosting have increased and I will be losing my employed income soon, so I have had to add in a section for voluntary donations if anyone feels so inclined. No pressure though - the group was always supposed to ensure that knowledge is available without a paywall. ***** For ongoing activism on Survivor/LXP Led Funding, here are a few resources: ‘Widening cross-disciplinary research for mental health’: what is missing from the Research Councils UK mental health agenda? - D. Rose, P. Beresford, S. Carr: The Politics of Service User Labour - L. Costa, L. Walter: ***** Please book your FREE place so that we have an idea of numbers to expect and can send you details of the papers being considered and Zoom details. MAD STUDIES EVENTS ARE ON THE FIRST THURSDAY OF EACH MONTH!!! 2024 Dates: 1 Aug 5 Sept 3 Oct 7 Nov 5 Dec
