Project PERFECT: Uncoupling Mental Illness from Irrationality

The Barber Concert Hall, The Barber Institute of Fine Arts
Monday 10 October 2016 (13:10-13:50)

Project PERFECT (Pragmatic and Epistemic Role of Factually Erroneous Cognitions and Thoughts) is a five-year project funded by the European Research Council exploring how we can break down the stigma commonly associated with mental illness by promoting a better understanding of how the mind works.

Professor Lisa Bortolotti will discuss the team’s work to create a more humane and realistic perception of mental distress, focusing on a person’s circumstances, strengths, and weaknesses, rather than diagnostic labels alone.
