Item description for Resurrecting the Person: Friendship and the Care of People with Mental Health Problems by John Swinton...

Overview
In Resurrecting The Person, John Swinton argues that while mental illnesses are often biological and genetic in orgin, the real handicap experienced by individuals is imposed by the types of reactions, values, and attitudes which are typical of contemporary western society. In other words, how a mental illness is experienced has much to do with how it is socially constructed.

Publishers Description
In Resurrecting the Person, John Swinton argues that while mental illnesses are often biological and genetic in origin, the real handicap experienced by individuals is imposed by the types of reactions, values, and attitudes which are typical of contemporary western society. In other words, how a mental illness is experienced has much to do with how it is socially constructed. How will the church react to this suggestion? Swinton suggests that the key to the effective pastoral care of individuals with severe mental illness lies not only within the realms of psychiatry, therapy, and pharmacological intervention, but in the rehumanization which is borne within the relationship of friendship.

Reviews - What do customers think about Resurrecting the Person: Friendship and the Care of People with Mental Health Problems?

We are all in this together.  Jul 4, 2007
I agree with this author's viewpoint that the church needs to be a leader in the area of being friends with people with mental health problems. As a chaplain, my ministry is with people on a locked Behavioral Care Unit where we have prayer service every week day. The prayers the patients pray at our service are about stopping prejudice toward the mentally ill, understanding of who the mentally ill are, and asking forgiveness of others and self-forgiveness. Once in prayer service as the chaplain I prayed that God would bless me in my anxiety; one of the patients afterward said, "you get it! We are all in this together!" And, we are. I found myself feeling excited that there is print material on this topic, thank you John Swinton. I definitely recommend this book if you are a spiritual director, chaplain, pastor/minister, Steven's minister or Befriender.
