I don't know what happened this time, but the two of us connected as never before on the topic of mental issues, and personally I don't think I have ever connected with anyone in such a natural way. A conversation I am proud of, and all thanks to the eloquence of the bould Richard. Thanks, Richard. Hope you all listen and are inspired in some way. gerardcounihan@gmail.com

Heather Bourke Conversation Salons
April 10, 2014 07:55 AM PDT

Today I converse with Heather Bourke about meaningful conversations. Heather runs Conversation Salons around the country, and she (and I) feel that participating in meaningful conversations is of benefit to all of us as a community. Here is a piece from a recent articled penned by Heather for the Irish Times.

Enough chit-chat: deeper conversation can lead us to enlightenment
Conversation salons, where people can talk openly about deep topics without having to fluff it up, are back.Sometimes it can feel as though a conspiracy of superficiality looms over us like a candyfloss cloud dictating the kinds of conversations that are socially acceptable.
At a dinner party I attended recently, the subject arose of how all the child abuse scandals had resulted in many people becoming disillusioned with the Catholic Church. Someone wondered whether, as a result, the nation’s spiritual identity had been thrown out with the bathwater, and I asked if a spiritual vacuum now existed with many traditional rites of passage being rejected but not replaced.The conversation was quickly diverted to someone’s daughter having her first Communion and how excited she was about getting a very expensive dress. Cue a lively discussion about Communion clothes, while the other discussion was abandoned.
Superficial chit-chat and the deliberate avoidance of meaningful conversation always give me a yearning for deeper encounters. I don’t think I’m the only one. I can do trivia, I can do gossip and I can, when the mood takes, be silly – but what I love are those surprising, stimulating, in- depth conversations that leave me feeling energised.My response to the lack of these conversations is a forum where people can talk openly about deep topics and philosophise to their hearts’ content without fear of having to dumb it down or fluff it up. At a time of profound change and challenge in this country, hosting conversation salons, a philosophy-based series, seems the perfect antidote to the superficiality conspiracy.

Beating the big S (schizophrenia) - A Day In The Life Of Richard
January 13, 2014 04:16 AM PST

This programme consists of a series of conversations with Richard, who has battled with a mild form of Schizophrenia for over 30 years. Richard is passionate about de-stigmatising his condition – and rejects the notion that a person suffering from any mental issue should be labelled as such: He is not his illness - he is an intelligent, so-called ‘normal’ human being like everybody else. His identity is not the illness. Rather, it is his lively, chatty, courageous self.

This programme benefits from invaluable contributions from Dr Paul Fearon of St. Patrick's Mental Health Services, Richard’s mother, Erik Casey and Angela Neville Egan - both of whom work for St John of God.
This programme was funded by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) with the television licence fee.

Thank you to all who made this programme possible. gerardcounihan@gmail.com

Interview with Jerry Dixon, Organisational Psychologist
October 16, 2013 08:26 AM PDT

From The Psychological Society of Ireland: "Work and Organisational psychology involves the study of human behaviour in the workplace. It is also referred to as industrial or occupational psychology. Since work comprises a significant role in most individuals’ lives, it is an area of psychology that is relevant.Psychologists working in this area recognise the importance of relationships between individuals, groups, organisations and society and aim to inform organisations and employers on how to build workplaces that foster optimal performance and well-being".

I converse with Jerry Dixon on unemployment, employability and the future of work. Thank you Jerry. Thank you for listening. gerardcounihan@gmail.com
