We’re delighted to share the following post, written by our good friends from Mind in Camden about their fascinating ‘Philosophy of Mind’ podcast with Project PERFECT at the University of Birmingham.
Mind in Camden are really proud to share our ‘Philosophy of Mind’ podcast, which is based on a ‘Philosophy of Mind’ workshop series that we ran in October 2017. The group was open to everyone, ran once a week for six weeks, and focused on sharing and using philosophical tools and ideas to talk about mental health, including hearing voices and unusual beliefs. Based on these workshops, we have just launched a ‘Philosophy of Mind’ group in HMP Pentonville.
The first part of this podcast is an interview with Sophie Stammers, the creator and facilitator of the workshop series and a philosopher at Project PERFECT at the University of Birmingham – she tells us about her work and her experience of facilitating the group. The rest of the podcast (from 12.25 onwards) is a group discussion amongst several participants about their experiences of the group – what was most important, what the group felt like, and what has stayed with them… A huge thank you to Camden Community Radio who helped us produce this.
You can listen to it on various platforms:
- The CCR channel on iTunes
- canstream link on the CCR website
- ‘Podcast’ apps on Apple smartphones and iPads – search ‘Camden Community Radio’, click on the podcast and it will show up as one of the most recent episodes.
All of Sophie’s materials for the workshop series are online.
