presentationposted on 18.12.2020, 14:58 by Richard James Talbot
The summary accounts for my role as a devising collaborator with Ridiculusmus, in relation to this project.
The methodology is claimed as practice-as-research and is structured around the development of three plays. Research outputs associated with these plays are listed in this document.
1) The Eradication of Schizophrenia in Western Lapland (2014) – investigated the impact of psychosis in family settings and the efficacy of Open Dialogue in Western Lapland as a set of principles for clinical therapy.
2) Give Me Your Love (2016) – investigated PTSD amongst service veterans and clinical trials into the prescription of doses of MDMA (Ecstasy) to accompany talking therapies.
3) Die! Die! Die! Old People Die! (2018) – investigated ‘complicated grief’ and social and psychological factors surrounding the ‘disorder’.
