5.0 out of 5 stars Changes, 26 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Schizophrenia: The Positive Perspective: Explorations at the Outer Reaches of Human Experience (Paperback)
I have been reading around the area of voices and psychosis for some time now and this was the first book for a while where it felt as though some new light were being shed on my understanding. The fact that Peter Chadwick has experience in what he writes about from both experiencer and psychogiser does not always translate into interesting, meaningful and importantly, useful writing (in my experience of people who have written about the subject having progressed into the professions within mental health the creative insights tend to be ironed out by the tedium of the training, myself included). Somehow, however, Mr Chadwick has managed to retain quite a lot of his experience and developed upon interesting and useful insights that he passes on to us here and I recommend this book mostly because of this.
No doubt the company he keeps (people within these pages also) has helped him in doing this.
Admittedly some of the content was a bit whacky for me but then I am reading it on the back of 17 years of conditioning by the psychiatric system!
Good stuff!
