Julie Parson in conversation with Declan Hughes
16 May 2017
Listen back to local author Julie Parsons in conversation with fellow writer and reviewer Declan Hughes. Julie’s new book The Therapy House – her first in almost a decade – is an atmospheric tale that takes the reader from Dún Laoghaire to Venice, a mix of contemporary crime and the dark divisions of the past. Retired detective Michael McLoughlin stumbles on his neighbour’s murder which ultimately may lead him to understand the killing of his father decades ago. The Therapy House represents a new expansive stage in Julie Parson’s writing career, a panoramic novel rich in character, intriguingly plotted and carefully drawn.

Mind-reading 2017: mental health and the written word
25 March 2017

A one-day programme of talks and workshops seeking to explore productive interactions between literature and mental health both historically and in the present day. Aiming to identify the roles that writing and narrative can play in medical education, patient and self-care, and/or professional development schemes. Bringing together psychologists, psychiatrists, interdisciplinary professionals, GPs, service users, and historians of literature and medicine, we will be asking questions about ilterature as a point of therapeutic engagement. We will explore methods that can be used to increase the well-being and communication skills of healthcare providers, patients and family members.
