Revd Professor Alistair RossSpirituality and Mental Health - Old Friends or New Partners?
Mental health and psychological well-being is one of the greatest challenges society faces. Everyone is touched by the spectre of mental illness, in our own experience or through engaging with the experiences of others close to us.
A neglected area that can enhance what it is to be human is spirituality. Spirituality has the potential to enhance how to we connect to ourselves, to others and beyond ourselves. Spirituality can restore the often neglected area of our humanity, our soul.
Alistair Ross is associate professor of psychotherapy at Oxford University. He is also Director of Psychodynamic Studies, Dean, and Fellow of Kellogg College, Oxford. He has been Chair of BACP’s Professional Ethics and Quality Standards committee.
Before focussing on therapy, Alistair trained and worked as a Baptist minister of religion and has also worked as part of a chaplaincy team in a psychiatric hospital.
He is the author of a brief biography on Freud (the History Press, 2016) which Ruby Wax thinks is a ‘very very smart book’. He is currently writing an Introduction to Contemporary Psychodynamic Counselling and Therapy (Open University), as well as an encyclopaedia on Freud.
