For those concerned by the rise (and fall) of asocial, individualist therapy in mental health care, I would recommend reading:

Dalrymple T. (2010) ‘Spoilt Rotten’. Gibson Square.

Furedi F. (2003) ‘Therapy Culture’ Routledge.

Leighton, K. (2005). Transcultural nursing: the relationship between individualist ideology and individualized mental health care. Journal of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing. Vol. 12. pp.85-94.

Leighton, K. (2005). Action research: the revision of services at one mental health rehabilitation unit in the north of England. Journal of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing. Vol. 12. pp.372-379.

Winship, G. (1998). Democracy in Psychiatric Settings: Collectivism v. Individualism. In Barker P. and Davidson B. (Eds.). Psychiatric Nursing – Ethical Strife. London: Arnold.

And don’t forget that cool guy Leo Vine-Knight (hem):

Leo Vine-Knight (2008). Looking Through the Windows of Madness. Mappleton. Writegoodbooks. Free ebook @ http://www.bibliotastic.com/ebooks/fiction-thriller/looking-through-windows-madness
