The Impact of Trauma on Mental Health

Hay Festival 2019 , 

There is a move in the field of mental health to shift from asking the question “What’s wrong with you?” to “What’s happened to you?” in an attempt to place traumatic life experiences and adversity at the heart of understanding mental health difficulties. Dr Lucy Johnstone, Clinical Psychologist and one of the lead authors of a radical new conceptualisation of mental distress called the Power Threat Meaning Framework, joins co-author Professor John Cromby for a discussion with consultant clinical psychologist Benna Waites.
