One half of Leolife, used to make & play trance. You can find links to all my socials and Leolife pages @ https://linktr.ee/stephenglide Whilst trying to carve our way into the trance scene I became disillusioned with the music industry. So I turned my attention to my day job, family, friends, enjoyed partying and moved to Cambridge from London. I did get to play quite a lot of cool events at the likes of Egg, Ministry Of Sound, The End, Scala, Junk, 02 Academy Bournemouth, Eden (Ibiza), Caf ...

In this podcast Professor Chris Williams, a researcher and teacher in the area of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) introduces CBT as a self-help form of therapy.

Autism is a neuro-developmental disorder with a prevalence of about one in 100 births. Although we assume that this disorder has always been with us, and Rab Houston and I identified a case from the 18th century, it was not given a label until the 1940s. Hans Asperger, a Viennese pediatrician, and Leo Kanner, an American child psychiatrist, both us…

Symptoms of schizophrenia develop in more than 1:200 people, in all cultures, while 2- 4% of the population may experience major depression at some time in their life. Mild and moderate depression are, of course, much more common. Sometimes illnesses run in families and show higher concordance among identical compared to non-identical twins suggest…

People in both the developed and the developing world are living longer, and in better health, than in any prior point in history.

There is an urgent need for practitioners …

Eating Disorders are understandable as a way of coping with uncomfortable feelings. A temporary sense of reward or emotional detachment can occur due to maladaptive eating. The disorders are driven by fears about being unacceptable. Beliefs about people with eating disorders being selfish or overly concerned about beauty, still seem to arise. In re…

I argued in the last podcast that medical theories in colonial Africa had a strong racial element to them, which buttressed colonialism. In this final podcast of my mini-series I’m going to explore how these ideas related to the actual practice of psychiatry in colonial Africa. I broaden my perspective to include not only Malawi, but also Natal and…

If you have listened to my series of podcasts on the history of psychiatry in Britain and Ireland you will know that psychiatric relationships are at least partly about power and about the assumptions medical practitioners made concerning those they treated. In the old world, class and sex were important differentiators. In a colonial setting there…

We are now acutely aware of the effect which viewing or participating in traumatic events can have on people. This last ‘document’ (actually a set of film clips) is about such outcomes. It has no words by the mentally troubled, but it does have the other components that lay and professional alike use to identify mental state: body language, appeara…

We encountered a coroner’s inquest a few weeks back, presiding over the tragic suicide of an anonymous man. An inquest could deliver a verdict on the cause of death and, if they named a third party, their verdict could serve as an indictment at an assize court. The Old Bailey was the assize for the City of London. This document illustrates how insa…

Most people with mental disorders are more of a liability to themselves than to others. The same cannot be said of this podcast and the next one, where the threat or reality of physical harm at the hands of a mad person seems to have been very real.

This series is entitled ‘the voice of the mad’, but sometimes mentally disordered people needed advocates to speak up for them. Normally that would mean a family member or someone in authority such as a local clergyman or Justice of the Peace. You might remember the young Derbyshire woman, Alice Hill, from an earlier podcast. But sometimes those al…
