Franco de Masi, Philip Slotkin, "Vulnerability to Psychosis: A Psychoanalytic Study of the Nature and Therapy of the Psychotic State"
English | ISBN: 1855755041 | 2009 | 345 pages | PDF | 2 MB
Vulnerablity to Psychosis provides the clinician with important perspectives on the origins and development of delusions in psychosis and offers a new perspective regarding the radical differences between delusional and normal or neurotic thought, and how these differences come about.
Franco De Masi addresses the human vulnerability to psychosis. He invites the reader into a thoughtful, systematic exploration of many aspects of the complex problems associated with psychotic illnesses: its ontogenesis and the emotional crises that lead to the dominance of psychotic thinking, the function of psychosis with regard to reality, its eruption or progression (depending upon the type of psychosis involved) and, crucially, the difficult and painstaking task of treatment.
