Madness in our culture is defined by visibility From the popular press to TV soaps and films What is Epubthe depiction of madness always borders on the extreme violent outbursts fits hallucinations But what if madness is not exactly what we think it to be What if it is the rule rather than the exception And what if its If you´re in love with Freud and neofreudian theories on psychoanalysis this book is the one for you The thing is Freud was a sex obsessed female unfriendly man who gave too much weight to his own ideas and had some really good points mostly the unconscious idea of therapy and figuring out individuals in stead of locking people up Many of his theories have been unproven of utterly discarded by scientific research and psychoanalysis is not evidence based which are the reasons that the Dutch government has recently got rid of psychoanalysis in basic care insurance and Freud has about 01% share in university studies psychology today His ideas have led to mothers being accused of virtually every psychiatric disorder their children cope with to tons of money spent on years of therapies in which patients got too talk excessively about their problems in stead of doing something about them and my own experience with a psychiatrist that was projecting HIS freudian ideas on me in stead of listening to what was really going on Which are all reasons why I got dissapointed in the book after three pagesHOWEVER Darian Leader has some really good points to discuss Which are the overkill turn around in psychiatry nowadays in which patients get pills and get lost orand there is NO time at all to discuss causes and inner experiences of people practictioners thinking they ´treat´ or help patients by normalizing them to society´s standards Some uirky ways may indeed be functional to an individual people may deal with existential themes that transcend DSM categories greatly and for gods sake the point of therapy is to helpt fragmented people become whole again which can only be done by holistic treatment not by treating one symptom at a time the focus on visible behavior lists of visible behavior to be precise and getting people diagnosed by these extensive lists of mostly visible behavioursI´d prefer the REAL dimensional thing with some traits or aspects such as neurotic psychotic hysteric antisocial in stead of 1000 diagnoses that overlap and change every yearAnyway have not read the book really Flipped through and read some good passages If it would be a book diving into madness but with a critical view to whatever theory or type of therapy being in vogue it would probably be a damn good book It is just that I cannot easily assess it´s value if beautiful insights get alternated by freudian misconceptions Sorry Darian
