Mental imagery has a powerful effect on our emotions. Troubling mental images, such as bad memories from the past, fearful ‘flashforwards’ and negative images of the self can have an impact on our mental health and our sense of self. How we understand and cope with mental images forms part of how many psychological disorders develop and are maintained.
In this talk, Hannah Murray will explore the different ways that negative mental images can affect us. Using insights from clinical practice and research, she will describe how images can be addressed as part of psychological therapy and how, in our day-to-day lives, we can transform our own troubling mental images.
A Q&A will follow, chaired by Cathy Creswell.
