IMHU STORE: EMMA BRAGDON’S BOOKS & VIDS
WE ARE PLEASED TO PRESENT AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE CONVENTIONAL DSM…AND SOME SMILES
A colorful, informative and humorous view into the real causes of mental disturbance –not just the symptoms they produce. It recommends some effective ways to treat causes, too.
This is a satire on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders–(the dictionary of categories of mental illnesses used by psychiatrists, psychologists, hospitals, MDs, insurance companies and courts of law). The 5 editions of DSM books previously published by the American Psychiatric Association say very little about causes & treatments–and focus more on labeling based on symptoms. The 5 editions by APA pave the way for medicalizing mental health care.
Our satirical look at the DSM is perfect waiting room fare for the office of a health professional, and a heart-warming, fun, informative self-help manual! Healthcare providers will certainly get laughs a plenty!
25 pages/ full color graphics, comes as a pdf document.
