The Oxford Handbook of Phenomenological Psychopathology – eBook PDF
The field of phenomenological psychopathology (PP) is related to exploring and describing the individual experience of those suffering from mental disorders. While there is often understandable stress within psychiatry on diagnosis and treatment, the subjective experience of the individual is often overlooked. Still, a patient’s own account of how their illness influences their thoughts, values, consciousness, and sense of self, can offer important
insights into their condition – insights that can supplement the more empirical findings from studies of brain-behavior or function.
The Oxford Handbook of Phenomenological Psychopathology, (PDF) is the first-ever comprehensive review of the field. It includes the history of PP, its methodology, main concepts, and includes a section exploring individual experiences within schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, depression, OCD, and phobia. Moreover, it includes chapters on some of the prominent figures throughout the history of this field.
Bringing together chapters from a global team of leading researchers, academics, and practitioners, the ebook will be valuable for those within the fields of clinical psychology, psychiatry and philosophy.
