Synopsis:

This collection explores the relationship between womanhood and psychosis from a variety of perspectives including anthropological, spiritual, psychological, biological and social. Chapter themes include explorations of medieval mystics and witches, postpartum psychosis, cross-cultural homeless women, disordered eating, Jungian complex theory, art and literature, feminism, transsexual women, psychoanalysis, and gender differences in respect to what is commonly termed ‘schizophrenia’. Grounding this conversation in everyday life, personal accounts are offered by psychotherapists, traditional healers, and women with lived experience of psychosis.
