about this item

Author Simon McCarthy-Jones teaches psychology and neuropsychology at Trinity College, Dublin; he is a member of the Hearing Voices Movement. In this book for general readers, students, and helping professionals, he brings in perspectives from the Hearing Voices Movement’s emphasis on trauma-based explanations and on listening to people’s experiences, seeking to bring together biology-led and trauma-led perspectives. Writing in plain language, with a sense of humor and references to popular culture, he gives much information on insights from neuroscience, genetics, and biochemistry; however, he also considers the history and biases of the medical and psychiatry establishment, as well as factors such as poverty, discrimination, and income inequality. There is special emphasis on the emerging links between hearing voices, child abuse, PTSD, and other trauma. Color and black and white images of the brain are included. The book’s audience includes undergraduates and general readers as well as clinicians and researchers. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
