Alternative Community Based Therapy for "Psychotic" Crisis

 

Madness Radio: Mary Olson Open Dialog

 

Is a 'psychotic' crisis inside one person's mind -- or does it happen between people, in their relationship? Can therapy untangle the web of madness by addressing the family, providers, and entire social network? Smith College social worker and Fullbright scholar Mary Olson discusses the innovative work of Jaakko Seikkula's Open Dialog Approach in Finland, which has achieved dramatic success in helping people through extreme states labeled 'psychosis' and 'schizophrenia' -- while relying much less on medication and hospitalization. http://bipolarblast.wordpress.com/2010/01/04/alternative-for-psychosis/, brassworks.millriver(at)gmail(dot)com
