The Journal of Mind and Behaviour: Challenging the Therapeutic State

£19.99

Product description

Institute of Mind and Behavior 1990. Cohen, David (editor). Book condition: very good ++. No DJ. Book shows a minimal amount of shelf-wear. Owner's name on inside of front cover.

From Amozon: 'This is actually a special issue of The Journal of Mind and Behavior (Vol. 11, No. 3 & 4, Summer and Autumn 1990). Essays by a wide variety of people are included, such as Thomas Szasz, Peter Breggin, Stanton Peele, Seth Farber, Phyllis Chesler ["Twenty Years Since 'Women and Madness'"], Judi Chamberlin, etc. Editor David Cohen states in the Preface that "The authors in this collection, representing more than ten different disciplines, do not share a single perspective on madness, deviance, psychiatry, or social control. However, they express the view that the systematic application of the medical model and its techologies in contemporary life has produced and continued to produce intellectual confusion, iatrogenic disorders, social enfeeblement and other difficulties. I hope these essays help to chart courses toward a more humanistic, pluralistic, and non-coercive system of 'helping' those we call the 'mentally ill'---usually troubled, unhappy, and poor people who break our rules, annoy us, or threaten our values and peace of mind." '
