Breast cancer can of course be developed without either of these genetic profiles. Neuroscience and its evolution, alongside changing conceptions of mental health, was also a recurrent theme from the 1996 production of Cracked by Nicola Baldwin through to the 2012 play Stunted Trees and Broken Bridges by Ben Musgrave.9 Genetics and neuroscience are both clearly burgeoning areas of

His mental health was quite frequently fragile, such that, as William Corbett observes in the Selected Letters, he was unable, after 1961, to hold down regular employment, and such that through the 1970s and the first half of the 1980s, he was several times hospitalised (SL, 135). During one such period of hospitalization in 1975, he wrote ‘The Payne Whitney Poems’, subsequently published in his 1980 collection The Morning of the Poem. In that short, deeply moving, diary-like cycle, Schuyler presents in miniature

It is interesting to note that European cases suggest much engagement of students and faculty from multiple disciplines of enquiry. In CUPP at Brighton, faculty members from mental health, community service, child development and social work came together initially; some students got involved as well, but new faculty engagement depended on resource availability.

The project initially intended simply to improve the nursing students’ performance in the role-play assessments used to evaluate their clinical skills in the final year of their studies. However, as the project developed, it emerged that specific techniques derived from drama training provided nurses with a systematic approach to
