Prof Bentall – rethinking the causes of emotional distress

At the Soteria Network conference – Derby 2011, Prof Richard Bentall was the last speaker. Unusually for a conference people were not sneaking out one by one to catch trains home. Prof Bentall was brilliant! He knows his stuff.

I have noticed this article of his is being circulated on the internet. Re-reading it, I can see why. Even if you have read this before it is worth sparing 5 minutes. It is just 1,000 words and yet says so much.
