Summary
"Many schizophrenics experience their condition as one of radical incarceration, mind-altering medications, isolation, and dehumanization. At a time when the treatment of choice is anti-psychotic medication, world-renowned psychoanalyst Christopher Bollas shows that schizophrenics can be helped by much more humane treatments, and explains that they have a chance to survive and even reverse the process if they have someone to talk with them regularly and for a sustained period soon after they show signs of imminent breakdown. In this sensitive and evocative narrative, Bollas draws on his personal experiences working with schizophrenics since the 1960s. He offers his interpretation of how schizophrenia develops, typically in the teen years, as an adaptation during the difficult transition to adulthood."--Dust jacket
