Forbidden Narratives: Critical Autobiography as Social Science
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungNarratives such as these that have been forbidden as outside proper professional standards are now claiming and receiving attention. "Forbidden Narratives" has the power to speak to a broad audience of not only mental health professionals but also policy makers, sociologists and students of feminism. It is about the breaking up of professional discourse. It demonstrates and signals drastic changes in the social sciences.
"Forbidden Narratives" explores overlapping layers of voices that convey the social relations of psychiatric survivor participation within a community mental health service system. It is written from the perspective of a woman who, as a mental health professional in Toronto, had a physical and mental breakdown during the course of her work. Ironically, the author had plunged into the very system she had entered as a professional, a health researcher, and an activist.
