I have been an avid producer of tc and therapy related cartoons. I'm not sure whether others have also done this. Over the next few months I will try to upload some of my cartoons to this page. If this is possible?

Here is the first cartoon:


Now here are some more ( I will write some explanation of their context at a later date):

This cartoon was drawn just before I left Webb House at the end of April 2003. At this point the cartoons had become a part of the institution rather than a rebellious expression.

This cartoon is a later addition to the "reality confrontation" cartoon that was one of the Henderson Hospital 1999 Calendar Cartoons. I will add these cartoons to this collection when I have scanned them in. The inspiration came from lambasting Rapoport's 4 themes: reality confrontation, permissiveness, communalism and democratisation (I think!). Hypocritical feedback was another aspect of TC life. Physic heal thyself!

This cartoon was drawn after a meeting to discuss the lottery funded Research on what makes TC's therapeutic with Jan Lees and Nick Manning at Nottingham. I think this was some time in 2000. The point I'm trying to make is that we are people studying other people. I guess it is trying to say something about the resonance that occurs in TC's between staff and residents, the researchers and the researching.

This cartoon was drawn whilst I worked at Henderson Hospital. It shows death having to go to Surgery (this was where the Nurse would see people, where any analgesia was kept and wounds assessed and treated). One of the guarantees that someone might be asked to give in a referred meeting was to 'hand their sharps in'. This was interesting dynamically as the staff were asked to hold the sharp damaging objects in a safe way. Often what would happen is that these sharps would never be returned and we ended up with a massive box of lethal or at least pointed objects. I thought it would be funny that 'Death' would have to hand his scythe in to surgery.
