Critiquing the Mental Disorders of Childhood: Misunderstanding Autism and Other General Considerations
Critiquing the Mental Disorders of Childhood is the fourth Volume of The Ethics International Press Critical Psychology and Critical Psychiatry Series.
Understanding the current systems of psychology and psychiatry is profoundly important. So is exploring alternatives. The Ethics International Press Critical Psychology and Critical Psychiatry Series presents solicited chapters from international experts on a wide variety of underexplored subjects. This is a series for mental health researchers, teachers, and practitioners, for parents and interested lay readers, and for anyone trying to make sense of anxiety, depression, and other emotional difficulties.
Critiquing the Mental Disorders of Childhood: Misunderstanding Autism and Other General Considerations takes aim at the current psychiatric paradigm with respect to the so-called “mental disorders of childhood.” It shines a bright light on the constructs and practices that confront today’s parents and their children, which lead to millions of unwarranted diagnoses. It provides a general overview and critique and takes a focused look at controversial areas, with a special focus on autism.
Editor: Dr. Chuck Ruby, Ph.D., is Executive Director of the International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry. He is a U.S. Air Force veteran and a licensed psychologist in private practice in southern Maryland who has been offering psychotherapy services for nearly 25 years.
