Launch of the Mental Health Life-course Lecture Series

Cambridge Institute of Public Health, Forvie Site,Cambridge Biomedical Campus, Cambridge CB2 0SR
First Lecture: The Development of Epistemic Trust: Systematic Reviews and Experimental Findings
We are pleased to announce the launch of our CLAHRC EoE lecture series placing a spotlight on the life-course approach to mental health and wellbeing, in partnership with the Eastern Academic Health Science Network (AHSN).
We are delighted to be joined by Professor Peter Fonagy for this first lecture. He will present his work on Epistemic Trust (an individual’s willingness to consider new knowledge as trustworthy) and specifically the journey from attachment theory to communication.
The talk will present a systematic review of studies of the influence of social recognition on learning for infants and young children and studies with adults that show that these mechanism remains operative in the adult mind. The clinical implications of this model will be explored in relation to service development and psychosocial interventions for both adults and children.
