The Politics Clinic: Nick Duffell on the emotional twistedness of official politics

In a recent YouTube video, author and psychotherapist Nick Duffell puts politics in the clinic. In conversation with filmmaker Adam Brichto, he breaks down the symptoms and explains the origins of the bullying culture inside Westminster while offering practical insights for our political leaders to grow in psychological awareness and vulnerability. Watch below:

Nick also participated in a panel at our Brighton laboratory on 'the politics of VR' earlier this autumn, discussing the strengths and weaknesses of using VR as a therapeutic tool. A subject Nick and VR film-maker Juliet Brown are currently exploring and experimenting with. Read more on the experiment, supported by University College London’s Department of Anthropology, here
