Exploring the mind

We're a department of leading academics and practitioners.

Our academics have looked at the dramatic rise in self harming amongst young girls, the setting phenomena in adolescents and what it actually means, and why Freud may have been right about psychological hysteria manifesting itself in physical symptoms. You can keep up-to-date with our latest developments and current activities by our staff and students.
