I am pleased to say that I have recently joined the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ evolutionary psychiatry special interest group (EPSIG). My first encounter with the group was being invited to give a talk following their AGM (video below). However, I’ve since learned a lot about the group.
The RcPsych EPSIG aims to raise awareness of the value of evolutionary theory to psychiatry, as well as encouraging research on the topic. The group has a fascinating mix of members with a range of expertise, bringing together clinical and academic expertise, across disciplines. They hold talks and host symposia, some of which can be found on their YouTube channel. Their newsletters are also available to all, if you want to read more.
