Abstract

Attending the World Economic Forum this past week, I was struck by two trends. The first was that brain research has emerged as a hot topic. Not only was brain science or brain health a new&#xD;theme at the meeting, research on the brain emerged in discussions about next generation&#xD;computing, global cooperation, and even models of economic development as well as being&#xD;linked to mental health or mindfulness. In a meeting frequented largely by economists&#xD;and business leaders, I was surprised by the number of non-scientists who have become&#xD;enchanted by brain science. Clearly this is the era of the brain, with mental health now part of a&#xD;much broader discussion.

Abstract

El objetivo del presente volumen es evidenciar aún más la necesidad existente de observar el proceso salud, enfermedad y atención en salud mental como un continuum donde la presencia, la historia y la cultura tengan un valor fundamental en la lectura terapéutica y su interpretación. Estos elementos permiten considerar la manera de definir, explicar y vivir los trastornos mentales tanto por parte del sujeto como de los terapeutas biomédicos.

Abstract

El libro que se presenta al lector es una guía de buenas prácticas para la atención de los problemas psicoemocionales de los adolescentes y jóvenes. La razón práctica de su elaboración es la infrautilización de los servicios profesionales por parte de este grupo de edad ante situaciones de depresión y ansiedad, principalmente; aunque también ante los malestares propios del ciclo vital. La razón más teórica, sin embargo, trasciende el objetivo específico para delinear un modo de investigación-participación propio de la salud mental colectiva.

Abstract

Este livro é o resultado de uma série de entrevistas desenvolvidas entre os anos 1998 e 2004 a Maria, uma moradora de um bairro pobre de Salvador de Bahia. Esta história não poderia ter sido escrita sem a entrega e a dedicação dela por desvendar a sua própria vida ao mundo. Este trabalho não só tenta descrever a experiencia de Maria no mundo da vida, o contexto sociocultural e econômico, mas, sobretudo, quer se aproximar de suas emoções sobre os adoecimentos e as alegrias, para mostrar aos leitores expressões sensíveis do vivido, em relatos de vida, como um método de trabalho da antropologia.

Abstract

Whether it is a question of the age below which a child cannot be held liable for their actions, or the attribution of responsibility to defendants with mental illnesses, mental incapacity is a central concern for legal actors, policy makers, and legislators when it comes to crime and justice. Understanding the terrain of mental incapacity in criminal law is notoriously difficult; it involves tracing overlapping and interlocking legal doctrines, current and past practices including those of evidence and proof, and also medical and social understanding of mental order and incapacity. Bringing together previously disparate discussions on criminal responsibility from law, psychology, and philosophy, this book provides a close study of mental incapacity defences, analysing their development through historical cases to the modern era. It maps the shifting boundaries between normality and abnormality as constructed in law, arguing that ‘manifest madness’ — the distinct character of mental incapacity revealed by this interdisciplinary approach — has a broad significance for understanding the criminal law as a whole.

Abstract

O conceito de 'experiência' é o fio condutor desta coletânea dividida em duas partes: a primeira aborda a construção social da doença, em especial a 'doença mental', enfocando as experiências de aflição através dos processos sociais e diálogos que lhe dão forma; a segunda focaliza o doente e a experiência do adoecer e do se tratar. A instigante análise aborda questões relativas à subjetividade, corporalidade e ação, aspectos fundamentais para o entendimento dos modos socialmente compartilhados através dos quais os moradores do Nordeste de Amaralina (bairro de classe trabalhadora de Salvador) identificam, explicam e reagem à doença mental.

Abstract

This book explores how the body was investigated in the late nineteenth-century asylum in Britain. As more and more Victorian asylum doctors looked to the bodily fabric to reveal the ‘truth’ of mental disease, a whole host of techniques and technologies were brought to bear upon the patient's body. These practices encompassed the clinical and the pathological, from testing the patient's reflexes to dissecting the brain.Investigating the Body in the Victorian Asylum takes a unique approach to the topic, conducting a chapter-by-chapter dissection of the body. It considers how asylum doctors viewed and investigated the skin, muscles, bones, brain, and bodily fluids. The book demonstrates the importance of the body in nineteenth-century psychiatry as well as how the asylum functioned as a site of research, and will be of value to historians of psychiatry, the body, and scientific practice.

Abstract

O conjunto de textos que compõe esta publicação privilegia uma reflexão crítica e uma perspetiva integradora no estudo da saúde e das doenças. Faz-se uma ponte crítica entre os determinantes biológicos e sociais da saúde e das doenças em ‘tempos crise’; pensa-se criticamente sobre a construção social e cultural do conhecimento científico, com recurso ao método etnográfico; aborda-se o importante tema do estigma e a necessidade de o combater, no âmbito do trabalho pedagógico, em nome da dignidade e liberdade dos doentes; reflete-se sobre padrões de comunicação e interação interpessoais, estratégias adaptativas e vulnerabilidade ao stress nas Equipas de Enfermagem; analisam-se as representações sociais e a prevenção do abuso sexual de menores junto dos profissionais de saúde, no âmbito dos Cuidados Primários; investiga-se a experiência da dor e as dimensões psicológicas, sociais e culturais do sintoma, assim como se desenvolvem argumentos relacionados o controlo não farmacológico da dor, no âmbito do trabalho clínico das Equipas de Enfermagem e, por fim, faz-se uma reflexão crítica sobre as representações sociais da masturbação e respetivos antecedentes médicos, históricos e religiosos.
