Understanding the current systems of psychology and psychiatry is profoundly important. So is exploring alternatives. The Critical Psychology and Critical Psychiatry Series presents solicited chapters from international experts. This is a series for mental health researchers, teachers, and practitioners, and also for anyone trying to make sense of anxiety, depression, and emotional difficulties.
Critiquing the Mental Disorders of Childhood: Misunderstanding Autism and Other General Considerations, the fourth Volume in the Series, 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.
