Keert nieuwe psychiatrie terug naar de betekenis?

Publication year 2018
Published in Tijdschrift voor Psychiatrie

BACKGROUND: Psychiatry is currently challenged by two main issues, subjectivity and non-exclusivity.<br /> AIM: The re-appraisal of phenomenological psychiatry.<br /> METHOD: Personal reflection. <br /> RESULTS: Phenomenology may contribute to psychiatry by 1. offering a method, 2. focusing on descriptive observation, and 3. taking a neutral stance.<br /> CONCLUSION: By emphasizing the subjective experience, phenomenology offers psychiatry an opportunity to become proficient and to distinguish itself from other disciplines through the continued development of insight and understanding of mental disorders.
