THE SOCIOLOGY OF MENTAL ILLNES, Fifth Edition focuses on the critical role played by social forces associated with mental illness, including diagnosis, causality, social epidemiology, stigma, and treatment, as well as the personal suffering of the mentally ill and their families. Written by one of the foremost psychiatric sociologists in the U.S. and Europe, THE SOCIOLOGY OF MENTAL ILLNESS remains highly comprehensive, presenting evidence about the influence of social stressors in the initial development and treatment of the mentally ill throughout. It retains its fresh and engaging writing style that includes many interesting real-life case studies and contemporary stories taken from today's headlines as well as several examples of cutting-edte research presented by the author's research team.
