Schizophrenia is interpersonal ?




"The debate about the origin of schizophrenia being genetic, social, biological, drug induced etc rumbles on and on. But what of the spaces where the person with so called schizophrenia, voices, hallucinations, paranoia etc. inter-relates in a safe, constructive and validating relationship and the prominence, distress and threat no longer take priority?

Is the person in an altered state presenting a narrative of fear and response to fear, that he or she experiences in unsafe relationships and the world around them? What might happen when the person who is sitting facing them, who has labelled and described their legitimate functional adaption to cumulative interpersonal trauma as an ‘illness’, ceases to label and instead offers their own self in relationship with the person in a so called psychotic state?

Recently I have been noticing a lot less ‘psychosis’ in the consulting room. Perhaps more important, noticing less and less interest by the person that may have been labelled or self-labelled as psychotic, in talking about or even experiencing the ‘psychosis’.  This may potentially be a good thing, but If psychosis itself is not the priority to the ‘psychotic person’, then what might be the difficulty?  Could it be that the psychosis, altered state was simple an expression of unsafe relationship and when that relationship becomes safe the ‘messenger’ or altered state does not need to speak so loud to maintain safety?"


Letting the suffering of others touch us




"Healing occurs as 'that which has been rejected' comes into contact with love/acceptance/human presence, that does not turn away.

The fact that another persons' suffering impacts me is part of the healing process for the other. We would never want to get to a place where we are not affected by that, but that we do need to offer ourselves the same supports we offer the other person.

Its important to find layers of support. Layers of relational spaces to share and be heard and accepted and loved. To find a space for this pain and existential suffering to live so it doesn’t destroy you."

The methods used for mass extermination in the Nazi death camps originated and were perfected in earlier use against people with physical, emotional, and intellectual disabilities. Developed from the article by Dr. Mark Mostert, this website describes the historical context of attitudes toward people with disabilities in Germany and how this context produced mass murder of people with disabilities prior to and during the early years of World War II.
