«`Fast becoming a contemporary classic... this book tries both to be critical and engender critical thinking in a number of ways. It offers an overview of a number of theories that address human distress as well as particular forms of "pathology". This book effectively highlights the way that western society has taken "normal"; and "abnormal" emotional states to be factual entities rather than the constructed understandings of human phenomena that they are.... should be on the reading list of every course/module that attends to human distress′ - Journal of the Society for Existential Analysis

`I find this one of the most reasonable and persuasive analyses of this complex and fraught area. The final chapter includes a list of 28 journals and organizations considered to have a more enlightened view of mental health issues. There are also many valuable references′ - British Journal of Medical Psychology</i>»
