Women and the Psychosocial Construction of Madness focuses on the question of madness as it is experienced by women within gendered socio-political contexts. Chapter themes include diverse topics such as: black and ethnic minority women's experiences of psychosis; psychosis in transwomen; sexual trauma and psychosis; the doctor-patient relationship; and women's experiences of mental health treatment and recovery. Chapters span the disciplines of psychoanalysis, sociology, feminism / women's studies, critical theory, and mad studies. As a companion volume to Women and Psychosis: Multidisciplinary Perspectives, the overarching goal of this book is to provide an exploration of the unique interaction between the social and the psyche as it relates to marginalized women's mental health.

Recenzijas

"We must return to psychosis and its meaning systems again and again with every generation to understand the power it holds to oppress or illuminate the subjectivity of women who have supposedly gone mad. In Women and the Psychosocial Construction of Madness Marie Brown and Marilyn Charles have welcomed us to hear their voices once more and to listen with new ears." -- Aurelie Athan, Columbia University "Women and the Psychosocial Construction of Madness is thought-provoking collection of observations and insights about the challenges women of all socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds face in learning to cope with their psychosis-related symptoms." -- Andrea Lefebvre, author of Group Therapy for Voice Hearers: Insights and Perspectives
