Mind Reading 2019: Adolescence, Literature, and Mental Health

Conference on 17th May, 2019 at St Anne’s College, Oxford

Can literature and narrative improve the lives of young people?

We will bring together literary and humanities scholars with service users and practitioners in the field of child and adolescent mental health. Together we will ask questions about the role of literature as a point of therapeutic engagement in caring for children, adolescents, and young people. We are interested in how literature might play a role when we experience pain, trauma, and stress, as well as the ways in which literature might be employed as a tool to improve communication and foster understanding between medical learners, healthcare providers, service users, and family members.
