Psychosis as a Personal Crisis
A new book has been added to the the ISPS book series (published by Routledge) late in 2012
Edited by Professor Marius Romme and Dr Sandra Escher, “Psychosis as a Personal Crisis” describes an approach which is fundamentally about the person, and finding traditional medical approaches at best providing band-aid treatment for these crises, this book seems to provide a framework for this personalised response to distressing symptoms, like voices (auditory hallucinations) and beliefs (delusions).
A sample chapter, “Psychiatry at the crossroads: The limitations of contemporary psychiatry in validating subjective experiences “, by Dr Brain Martindale, is available for download here.
Dr Martindale has written extensively on psychosis – two of his freely available papers are here:
Psychodynamic contributions to early intervention in psychosis
The rehabilitation of psychanalysis and the family in psychosis: Recovering from blaming
