Philosophers chatting with Clinicians is a small podcast aiming to bridge the gap between philosophy and the practice.

A semi-regular podcast in-which I am joined by a philosopher and a clinician to discuss our science, the experience of pain and how we construct healthcare supporting people to thrive.

 Episode 4 #RaShre

In this episode I'm joined by Philosopher Dr Rani Lill Anjum from the Cause Health Project chatting with Psychologist Dr Shreena Unadkat.

This episode is packed with challenging information about what we call science, how we collate and use evidence to underpin our practice and some really cheesy local-radio-style editing!

We talk about the challenges facing clinicians that are navigating the tricky world of Evidence Based Practice and how exploring our philosophy of causation through dispositionalism may help us to better support the people living with complex experiences, such as pain, better. Which is the golden goal. Better care. Better access. Better services.

After a long break from publishing episodes I am happy to announce the return of Philosophers Chatting with Clinicians and this is a great episode to come back on!

This was a live recording of a collaboration session between Philosophers Chatting with Clinicians and another project that I work with: Le Pub Scientifique

This was one of our very first virtual sessions for Le Pub Scientifique Home Brew following the COVID-19 restrictions in May 2020, when so many of our in-person educational courses, meetings and gatherings were cancelled. 

So here you have a conversation between Philosopher Julian Kiverstein and Physiotherapist and Professor, Mick Thacker. During this wonderful convesation they explore phenomenology, embodied cognition and predictive processing applied to the experience of pain.

Joined by some friends and colleagues, philosopher Mark Miller and Clinicians Time Beames, Bart van Buchem, Morten Høgh and Tim Cocks, you will hear some interesting and maybe even challenging ideas for understanding pain as well as a few laughs. 

 

It's quite a long one at just under two hours, but it is so so worth it.

Enjoy

 

Episode 3 #MaKa

Here we go folks! Episode 3 is now available.  I chat with philosopher Mark Miller, who kindly joined us in the early morning from Canada, and psychologist Katinka Damen, from the Netherlands.

A great chat that really asked us all to think about our own role within the therapeutic encounter and what we might be struggling with as clinicians. 

A huge thank you to all the patrons and everyone that engages with the podcast through social media!
