Product Description

Review

"...a necessary item in any list of readings..." (Human Nature Review, 15 October 2002)

"…in each chapter there is the sense of the author’s individual voice conveying a wealth of experience and judgement…" (British Journal of Psychiatry, May 2003)

From the Back Cover

Psychiatry in Society provides an overview of the recent socio-economic and cultural changes affecting mental health and mental health care.

These changes include:

  • The increasing complexity of the economic contexts within which mental health services are funded and delivered
  • The demand for cost-effectiveness evidence
  • The rationing of access to new pharmacotherapies and psychotherapies
  • The emergence of quality of life as an essential criterion in the assessment of health care interventions
  • The growing awareness of the influence of stigma on shaping the long-term course of severe mental disorders
  • The enhanced role of advocacy groups in providing information, advice and support to sufferers.
This book will be of interest to psychiatrists and psychologists, mental health workers, managers and policy makers.

Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
The distribution of health and disease in human populations reflects where people live, how they live, what they eat, the work they do, the air they breathe and the water they drink, their interconnectedness with others, the beliefs they hold about health and disease, and the organization and quality of health care available to them. Read the first page

Format: Hardcover
Incorrectly categorizes ME ("CFS"), Fibromyalgia and Lyme Disease as somatization. Pls see ME International Consensus Criteria, 2011, for accurate information.

from p.7:
"Chronic brucellosis is not a disease, but a pattern of illness behavior, triggered by an acute infection in a psychologically predisposed individual, an illness pattern reinforced by medical labeling that crystallizes distress by sanctioning it as a biological entity.

With chronic brucellosis largely controlled by public health measures, it disappeared from the medical scene in the USA. But it was soon replaced by new idioms of distress: chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and chronic Lyme disease."
