Healers in the UK - who are they and what do they do? Webinar

18th to 19th Oct 2021

18th October 2021, 7.45pm

Prof Paul Dieppe
There are a lot of healers working in the UK – probably around 30,000; and they work a lot with people who are in pain.
I have been investigating healing for about 12 years.  I have worked with the Confederation of Healing Organisations, who have helped me survey UK healers.  I have also undertaken in-depth interviews with many healers, as well as experiencing many healing interventions myself.  Based on these experiences, I will present my current understanding of the UK healing scene, and what healers do.
 
Paul Dieppe is a retired rheumatologist and Public Health academic who now works on the phenomenology of healing in the UK.  He holds emeritus positions at the Universities of Exeter and Bristol.
 
He specialised in rheumatology and became ARC professor of rheumatology in Bristol in 1987, and Dean of the Bristol Faculty of Medicine between 1994 and 1997. He then switched to health services research and was the Director of the MRC Health Services Research Collaboration between 1997 and 2007. After that he spent a short time at the University of Oxford before moving to the Peninsula Medical School to work in clinical education research.
