Karnacology provides knowledge and ideas for mental health professionals who practice talking therapies or any form of talking treatment in working with their clients or patients. We are a forum for conversations about all aspects of mental health and its treatment. You can search the site, ask us questions, or enter into dialogue and debate with experienced professionals. We hope you will also contribute your own knowledge and experience to the site, so that others may benefit from it.
What does Karnacology do?
Karnacology aims to facilitate contact and discussion amongst practising professionals in the mental health field, but also to provide services and ideas for authors (and potential authors) on how best to reach their audience. We also aim to cover anything to do with authoring books or content in the mental health field.
Karnacology is part of Karnac Books Ltd. (est. 1950). We publish and distribute books, ebooks and journals in the field of mental health through close cooperation with some of the leading institutions in the areas of counselling, psychotherapy, and psychoanalysis.
Our authors include Iain McGilchrist, Michael Eigen, Oliver James, Brett Kahr, Camila Batmanghelidjh, Margot Waddell, John Michael Greer, Alison Miller, Meg Harris Williams, Brent Potter, Lene Austead, Andrew Samuels, Nick Totton, Joseph Berke, Darian Leader, Isca Salzberger-Wittenberg, as well as many others.
Books and the Digital Revolution
Before the web existed, people used to speak with booksellers and librarians and ask them for assistance if they had questions or problems that they did not know how to approach. Even then they did not expect only books to be the answer. There will remain a role for physical books, but there is now also an ever-widening range of digital resources.
Behind all forms of knowledge there are people. We want to help you get in touch with whomever can help you with your question, issue or problem. This is a widening of the age-old role of publishers, whose role was to bring authors and readers or audiences together.
