Here is treatise on Existential Psychiatry, written by a psychiatrist, formerly Assistant Professor of Psychiatry. It is the first book of its kind, as it avoids abstractions, offering a cohesive, unitary theory of mental illness, instead. It bases itself on past perceptions of mental disease brought into conformity with the findings produced by modern research. Most psychiatric disorders find representation in this volume, as their biological, psychological & spiritual determinants are sorted out & explored. Existential psychiatry - defined in simple words - claims that we suffer more profoundly & pervasively from what we do or fail in doing, than from blows of fate or externally-determined traumata. More often than not, an undue accretion of sin & guilt complexes will be found directly responsible for the outbreak of a psychiatric illness. Just as physiological laws cannot be violated without detriment to the body, transgression of certain spiritual laws causes suffering, psychological distress, damage, & even mental disease. Practical solutions & new treatment approaches for the mentally ill are offered. To order contact: Ever Publishing, 900 W. 190 St., No. 10D, New York, NY 10040.
