A Language for Psychosis: Psychoanalysis of Psychotic States
Taylor & Francis, 2001 - Medical - 250 pages
This book brings together a number of international writers who are concerned with understanding and treating psychoses. The orientation of the book is psychoanalytic, but the authors understand the need for a multi-disciplinary approach to these disorders for which there remains no comprehensive cure. Detailed clinical cases are presented along with contemporary conceptualizations of psychotic states.
