This volume highlights the importance of diverse voices and perspectives in understanding the history and heritage of psychiatry. Exploring the complex interrelations between psychiatry, heritage and power, Narrating the Heritage of Psychiatry complicates the pervasive biomedical narrative of progress in which the history of psychiatry is usually framed. By examining multiple perspectives, including those of users/survivors of mental health services, the collection sheds light on neglected narratives and aims to broaden our understanding of psychiatric history and current practices. In doing so, it also considers the role of art, activism, and community narratives in reimagining and recontextualizing psychiatric heritage. This volume brings into conversation perspectives from practitioners as well as scholars from the humanities and social sciences.
Narratives and Mental Health offers a forum for dialogue between the arts, humanities and other disciplines interested in mental health and well-being.

Narrative is a central tool for meaning-making. Yet, its relevance has long been sidelined in the mental health sector including psychiatry, clinical psychology, medicine and social work.

To explore the intersection of narratives and mental health, the peer-reviewed book series takes an interdisciplinary approach and accommodates studies which investigate, for one, the uses and usefulness, but also the possible limitations of narrative in mental health care settings. The series is also very interested in studies that examine mental health issues in the representation, conceptualization, medialization and dissemination of mental health-narratives in areas as varied as literature and life-writing, the arts and film, journalism and (oral) history, digital and graphic storytelling, and many more.

Monographs and themed volumes are invited that include perspectives from comparative literary studies, history, narratology, psychology and philosophy, amongst others.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals for manuscripts to the publisher at BRILL, Masja Horn.

A comprehensive guide to its aetiology, impact and wider significance in pig management
Volume Editors: and
This book provides a comprehensive overview of the issue of tail biting in pigs, one of the most significant welfare and economic problems in the pig industry. With contributions from renowned experts in their fields, it is an essential resource for both scientists, and industry stakeholders. Key topics include the evolutionary roots of the disorder, internal and external risk factors, methods that can be used to address the issue, including human behavioural change, and the wider economic, and ethical considerations. Finally, evidence is provided as to how an intact tail can be used as an ice-berg indicator for overall pig welfare.
