NORWALK, Conn., April 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that a newly published special report in Psychiatric Times — the nation's best-read psychiatric publication — delves into how literature, art and other offerings in the humanities can counter reductionism and help psychiatrists uncover each patient's subjectivity and individuality.
The four articles in the Special Report focus on:
- Psychiatry and Art: A Means for Healing and Fighting Stigma. Art allows for critical distance, retrospection, and vast opportunities for individual choice and, thus, may be conducive to an improved self-image and self-esteem.
- Religion, Spirituality, and Psychiatry: Spiritual Assessment and Clinical Care: Why there is a growing trend in favor of addressing spiritual and religious issues in psychiatric care.
- The Humanities and Psychiatry: The Rebirth of Mind: The author writes that science alone cannot answer the question of what it means to be human. He explores the battle for psychiatric knowledge and outlines the dramatic story of the clash of the psychiatric titans.
- Shakespeare and Psychiatry: A Personal Meditation: Hamlet goes under the microscope here: was his insanity real or feigned?
