Carina Håkansson, co-founder of the Family Care Foundation in Sweden, discusses her work with family care homes, psychotherapy and family therapy absent from psychiatric diagnoses and manuals.
From April 25-27, The Family Care Foundation is hosting an international conference entitled “Presence and Participation: Arguments for the Humanistic and Sustainable Work We Do” in Gothenburg, Sweden. The conference aims to counter the arguments for the increasingly manualized practices in caretaking professions, by raising issues around sustainability and research associated with humanism. Stay tuned to MadinAmerica.com in the coming days for information about Live Streaming Video of select conference presentations from Gothenburg.
Mad in America hosts blogs by a diverse group of writers. These posts are designed to serve as a public forum for a discussion—broadly speaking—of psychiatry and its treatments. The opinions expressed are the writers’ own.
