An experience-based approach
Psychosis as a personal Crisis seeks to challenge the way people hear voices are both viewed and treated. This book emphasises the individual variation between people who suffer from psychosis and puts forward the idea that hearing voices is not in itself a sign of mental illness.
In this book the editors bring together an international range of expert contributors, who in their daily work, their research or their personal acquiantance, focus on the personal experience of psychosis.
Further topics of discussion include:
* accepting and making sence of hearing voices
* the relation between trauma and paranoia
* the imitations of conemporary psychiatry
* the process of recovery
This book will be essential reading for all mental health professionals, in particular those wanting to learn more about the development of the hearing voices movement and applying these ideas to better understanding those in the voice hearing community.
