spiritual_emergency Posted August 2, 2010 Report Share Posted August 2, 2010 In the thread that Allen initiated, "Can a Mind be Sick?" we've had quite a lively discussion. I'm not sure if we fully addressed his opening query but we did examine it, in particular the possible role of Jungian-based methodologies as a means of interpreting and addressing the content that emerges from an individual in deep crisis whose psyche has collapsed/fragmented/shattered. We also briefly looked at the role of medication (some of us more closely than others) and touched on the idea that collective bodies can also become ill: families, institutions, idealogies, cultures, even entire nations. In these cases, the individual in crisis may be expressing the crisis and dis-ease of the entire collective. Family systems therapy (thanks for bringing that up, finding my way), are probably some of the best examples we have for interpreting "not-wellness" within a collective group. I had considered adding more to that thread but then I thought perhaps it would be better to spin off into a new one, hence the title of this thread: Can a Mind be Well?In this topic, I thought I'd share some of the information I've gathered as related to treatment approaches that seem to have a very good success rate for helping people recover from the experience that is known as psychosis and/or schizophrenia in this culture.
