Interpersonal influence and decision-making capacity – in conversation with Kevin Ariyo

In this ‘in conversation with’, I talk to Dr Kevin Ariyo about the research that he led (as part of the as part of the Mental Health & Justice Project) into interpersonal influence and decision-making capacity, focusing on the way in which this issue has played out in the courts, and asking what the research might tell us about how we can think better about this area.

The article we discuss was led on by Kevin with Dr Nuala Kane, Dr Gareth Owen and I, and was published in June 2023 in the Medical Law Review: Interpersonal influences on decision-making capacity: a content analysis of court judgments.  The survey of professionals Kevin mentions towards the start of our discussion can be found here.
