Description:

Women and the Psychosocial Construction of Madness focuses on the question of madness as it is experienced by women within gendered socio-political contexts. Chapter themes include diverse topics such as: black and ethnic minority women's experiences of psychosis; psychosis in transwomen; sexual trauma and psychosis; the doctor-patient relationship; and women's experiences of mental health treatment and recovery. Chapters span the disciplines of psychoanalysis, sociology, feminism / women's studies, critical theory, and mad studies. As a companion volume to Women and Psychosis: Multidisciplinary Perspectives, the overarching goal of this book is to provide an exploration of the unique interaction between the social and the psyche as it relates to marginalized women's mental health.
