Problems and Polemics

Wordcatcher Publishing



Problems and Polemics is intended to be a critical (sceptical) look at what passes for current mental health practice within the community. Throughout the mental health field now, both with those diagnosed unwell and with their treatments, there are many disagreements over, and holes in, the reasoning processes of the professionals purported cures often being as illogical as the illnesses, the human fallibility of the professionals at odds with the therapeutic environments that they are supposed to maintain. And it is because of the disparate nature of mental health practise that I have found that poetry (or prose poetry if youd prefer) conveys, in book form, far more accurately the fragmentary realities of the world of mental ill-health carers & cared-for rather than straightforward prose, with its temptations to argue a singular point of view, subjecting all to the authors template.
