The book takes a bold quantum leap beyond the restrictive bio-medical notions of 'illnesses' such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder to view these conditions from a holistic perspective that reveals a 'method in the madness' of psychosis. The author, John Watkins, writes that some episodes may function as a desperate coping strategy while others reflect a profound developmental crisis or spontaneous self-healing process. Some tumultuous episodes are appropriately viewed as spiritual emergencies or potentially transformative psycho-spiritual crises. UNSHRINKING PSYCHOSIS draws on the accumulated wisdom of mental health experts and individuals with firsthand experience to outline ways of responding to psychosis that will promote healing and recovery.
