Social aspects of mental health

This workshop argues that it is important, as therapists and other mental health practitioners, to regard people as biopsychosocial, and to consider to role of ‘the social’ in mental health. When working clients it is vital to maintain awareness of the social context of their struggles, particularly in relation to self-monitoring and self-criticism.

The workshop will cover the following elements:

  • Introductions and thinking biopsychosocially
  • Sociocultural aspects and mental health
  • Self-monitoring and mental health
  • The role of social messages about relationships in relationship problems
