Product description

Review

“This book describes the dimensional applied to psychiatric diagnosis and stirs the discussion at just the right time. The DSM system of rigid categories for psychiatric diagnosis is increasingly called into validity question. Categorical vs dimensional; we need to have this discussion.  Bowins allows us the ability to think about the topic in the sophisticated way it demands!”
Eric R. Marcus, MD, director, Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research, professor of clinical psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons

Mental Illness Defined is a thought-provoking and meaningful book. Dr. Bowins presents a sophisticated and innovative approach to understanding and integrating contemporary psychoanalytic theory with the latest cognitive behavioral theory and neuroscience. This combination of theories is presented on a continuum and provides a coherent and cohesive way of looking at the practice and necessary research in mental health in today's world. This approach is positive, individualistic, and open-ended in a dogmatic and rigid atmosphere that prescribes discrete sophomoric categories for emotional deregulation.”
Barbara Klein, PhD, ED, author of Alone in the Mirror: Twins in Therapy

“As a scientific classification of psychiatric illness, the current DSM has evoked widespread dissatisfaction.  Clearly, alternative schemes of illness classification are needed.  Here Dr Bowins throws into the mix the concepts of continuum, regulation and defense:  many disorders acting in reciprocal relationship to one another in order to maintain balance in the organism.  The analysis is strikingly original, based on a command of the enormous literature, and is an essential contribution to the coming debate.”
Edward Shorter, PhD FRSC, Jason A Hannah Professor of the History of Medicine, professor of psychiatry, faculty of medicine, University of Toronto
