Social Construction of Mental Illness and Its Implications for Neuroplasticity (Hardcover) (Michael T.
About this item
The Social Construction of Mental Illness and Its Implications for Neuroplasticity examines how the current concept of mental illness in society informs the dialogic skills and perspectives of psychotherapists. The common interpretation of atypical behavior as a symptom of illness has deterred mental health professionals from developing the skills and perspective needed to empower their clients. Too often the neuroplasticity of the human brain is ignored and clients’ needs are relegated to the pharmaceutical industry. Walker encourages psychotherapists to evolve their practice by considering the new information available in neuroscience, psychotherapy outcome studies, and postmodern psychotherapies. Recommended for scholars of psychology and sociology.
