Doctoring the mind : is our current treatment of mental illness really any good? by Richard P Bentall( Book )

31 editions published between 1753 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Toward the end of the twentieth century, the solution to mental illness seemed to be found. It lay in biological solutions, focusing on mental illness as a problem of the brain, to be managed or improved through drugs. We entered the "Prozac Age" and believed we had moved far beyond the time of frontal lobotomies to an age of good and successful mental healthcare. Biological psychiatry had triumphed." "Except maybe it hadn't. Starting with surprising evidence from the World Health Organization that suggests that people recover better from mental illness in a developing country than in the first world, Doctoring the Mind asks the question: how good are our mental healthcare services, really? Richard P. Bentall picks apart the science that underlies our current psychiatric practice. He puts the patient back at the heart of treatment for mental illness, making the case that a good relationship between patients and their doctors is the most important indicator of whether someone will recover." "Arguing passionately for a future of mental health treatment that focuses as much on patients as individuals as on the brain itself, this is a book set to redefine our understanding of the treatment of madness in the twenty-first century."--Jacket

Reconstructing schizophrenia by Richard P Bentall( Book )

21 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

`The summaries of evidence have provided ready-made challenges to previously unquestioned medical options ... the book provides a challenging update on the nature of scientific inquiry.' - British Journal of Clinical PsychologyDespite nearly one hundred years of research, very little progress has been achieved in the understanding of schizophrenic behaviour. There remains considerable uncertainty even about the fundamental features of the hypothesised illness. Reconstructing Schizophrenia subjects the difficult concept of schizophrenia to rigorous scientific, historical and sociological scrutiny. They ask why a biological defect has been assumed in the absence of hard evidence and look at what can be done psychologically to alleviate schizophrenic symptoms. Finally, they explore what new models and research strategies are required in order to understand schizophrenic behaviour. The result is a book that provides a distinctive and critical perspective on modern psychiatric theories and which demonstrates the severe limitations of an exclusively medical approach to understanding madness

3 editions published in 2006 in Spanish and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modelos de locura demuestra que las alucinaciones y las ideas delirantes son reacciones comprensibles ante los acontecimientos y las circunstancias de la vida, y no sólo síntomas de una supuesta predisposición genética o un trastorno biológico. En este libro, colaboradores de todo el mundo, critican el "modelo médico" de la psicosis y la locura; analizan desde una perspectiva histórica y económica el predominio del enfoque de la psicosis entendida como "enfermedad"; ilustran el papel de las industrias farmacéuticas; describen alternativas a las soluciones basadas exclusivamente en la medicación y apuntan la urgencia y la posibilidad de prevenir las psicosis, la locura. Modelos de locura aboga por una respuesta más humana y efectiva para el tratamiento de las personas gravemente afectadas por las psicosis. Por su planteamiento alternativo al tiempo que riguroso se trata de una obra esencial para psiquiatras y psicólogos clínicos, para los profesionales y trabajadores de los servicios sociales y de salud mental, y para todos los estudioso de la sociedad y la cultura

The inter-relationship between mood, self-esteem and response styles in adolescent offspring of bipolar parents: An experience sampling study( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: The response styles theory of depression (Nolen-Hoeksema, 1991 ) proposes three main strategies individuals employ in response to low mood: rumination, active coping (distraction and problem-solving) and risk taking. Although recent research has suggested this theory has utility in understanding the symptoms of bipolar disorder (BD), the role of these processes in conferring vulnerability to the condition is poorly understood. Twenty-three adolescent children of patients with BD and 25 offspring of well parents completed the Experience Sampling Method (ESM;Csikszentmihalyi and Larson, 1987 ) diary for six days. Longitudinal analyses were carried out to examine inter-relationships between mood, self-esteem and response styles. Increased negative as well as positive mood resulted in greater rumination in both groups. Low self-esteem triggered greater risk-taking at the subsequent time point in the at-risk group, while negative affect instigated increased active coping in the control group. In both groups, engagement in risk-taking improved mood at the subsequent time point, whilst rumination dampened self-esteem. Differential longitudinal associations between mood, self-esteem and response styles between at-risk and control children suggest early psychological vulnerability in the offspring of BD parents, with important indications for early intervention
