Person-centred care in psychiatry, self-relational, contextual, and normative perspectives, Gerrit Glas

This book offers a distinctive approach to two important linked conceptual issues in psychiatry: the relation between self, context, and psychopathology; and the intrinsic normativity of psychiatry as a practice. It shows how the clinical conception of psychopathology and psychiatry as normative practice are innately connected, and how the normative practice model can be conceived as a natural extension of the analysis of the web of relations that sustain illness behavior
