London 6-8 Mar17: #MaryChambersBookLaunch; Chelsea FC; engagements & networking

I set off on bus, train, tram and plane to London, Monday 6 March 2017, for a book launch 6pm on the Tuesday 7 March in St George's, University of London, Hunter Wing: 'Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing: The craft of caring' edited by Professor Mary Chambers.   

Dr Rosie Stenhouse and I had co-authored Chapter 3: Developing and maintaining therapeutic relationships. Rosie is one of my supervisors on PhD starting September, which has the aim of researching Safe Haven Crisis Houses in the UK and abroad.

While in London I organised a catch-up with friend and colleague Guilaine Kinouani (who'd invited me to speak at the Minorities Conference in London BPS Offices, Tabernacle St, 5 July 2016).  

Guilaine describes herself as "Feminist. Therapist. Analytically Minded Critical Psychologist." and writes on Race Reflections.


Tuesday morning I'd dropped by Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge, my grandson's favourite fitba team, to take photos and visit megastore.

Lunchtime Tuesday I met with Prof Diana Rose at King's College, to discuss mental health service user/survivor research and the Professor's academic work, nationally and internationally, and her recent Principal Investigator research funding award from Wellcome Trust, £586,164: User-Led Research in Mental Health: history, impact and current configurations.
