Om sosial konstruksjon av psykisk lidelse

Fra sammendraget til den australske studien “You can’t put it in a box and tie it with a ribbon”: The consumer movement and the social construction of mental illness, som foreligger i fulltekst:  

First, the social construction of mental illness is drawn up by two principle discourses: professionals pathologize mental illness and consumers contextualize mental illness... Second, analysis of the social practices of mental health care settings as revealed in language foregrounded central concerns around administration. Mental health care as an institution has produced what Foucault (1978) names “procedural techniques” for recording information. These are techniques of control that prescribe the rules of conduct for professionals and consumers in the institution of mental health care. These techniques reduce the agency and personal responsibility of professionals and marginalize the self-knowledge of consumers.
