Literary criticism


with a number of social issues relating to mental health intervention, the author develops a problem on the relationship between individual change and social change. These challenges — proliferation of interventions, social function: and the ideology of those involved, social commitment, professionalisation, the commercial relationship, alternatives and social classes — applied to a critical book on mental health intervention — psychotherapies, attention *. It is possible to identify from this book a social model of mental health/illness in which a predominantly social aetiology of mental health/illness necessarily requires action aimed at both the individual and his environment. The author questioned the applicability of such a model by proposing three working hypotheses on individual responsibility versus social responsibility for mental health problems, on theory/practice in mental health and on a distinction between immediate and mediate causes in health/mental illness.
