Rethinking Madness: Towards a Paradigm Shift In Our Understanding and Treatment of Psychosis

marți, 22 ianuarie 2013



Rethinking Madness: Towards a Paradigm Shift In Our Understanding and Treatment of Psychosis: If madness, or psychosis, is just a result of a physical defect in the brain, then it makes sense to devote little effort to understanding the experiences of mad people, and to focus instead on suppressing such experiences as much as possible.

That’s what our vast “mental health” industry has been doing for decades, without success. In his book, Rethinking Madness: Towards a Paradigm Shift In Our Understanding and Treatment of Psychosis, psychologist Paris Williams outlines a very different approach — one that prioritizes understanding and the valuing of personal experiences.
