My name is Pamela Jacobsen and I work in mental health services as a Clinical Psychologist.  I also do research to try to improve the care people receive when they experience mental health difficulties.  To find out more about my research work click here.

This blog will taking a look at arts and culture through a psychological perspective.   I’m going to base each post on a piece of art (be it a book, play, film or whatever) and bring psychological theory and practice to my objective experience and understanding of it.  If you’d like to make suggestions for topics for future blogs, or would like to write a guest post, please contact me on twitter @psychculturevul or by using the contact form below.
