Item description for Fragile Connections: Memoirs of Mental Illness for Pastoral Care Professionals by Donald Capps...

"One of the greatest contributions of Capps' book is the way in which he weaves together a vast range of theories, interpretations, and explanations of psychopathology, without ever losing sight of the humanity of the person living with mental illness. Far too many books seek to find one, single explanation of the baffling and complex phenomenon of mental illness. Fragile Connections will expand our understanding and empower pastors and others concerned about mental illness with an eloquent exploration of one of the greatest mysteries of human predicament. Capps' book offers us a beautifully written and compelling study in the tradition of William James' The Variety of Religious Experience."

Publishers Description
Fragile Connections is about the impact of mental illness on the afflicted and their loved ones. It is written to give ministers and other care providers basic knowledge of four types of mental illness-depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer's disease-so that they may better understand and respond to those who suffer from these illnesses. For each of the illnesses discussed, Capps provides readers with a working knowledge of the "five C's" of mental illness: characteristics, causes, course, consequences, and curability. He uses memoirs written by persons afflicted with mental illness or by their family members rather than case studies to offer a personal understanding of the impact of these illnesses.
