There is increasing recognition that to find solutions to complex problems we need to work alongside others from different disciplinary backgrounds. Many academics agree to this in principle yet it is difficult to be truly flexible in your thinking and behaviour when you have been trained within a particular discipline. In this presentation I reflect on the benefits and challenges of transdisciplinary working, and my trajectory through health, art and psychological fields, leading to my current appointment as Professor of Arts and Health and Head of Dementia Care at UWL.
