Item description for Forbidden Narratives ; Critical Autobiograghy as Social Science (Theory and Practice in Medical Anthropology and International Health) by Kathryn Church...

Narratives such as these that have been forbidden as outside proper professional standards are now claiming and receiving attention. Forbidden Narratives has the power to speak to a broad audience of not only mental health professionals but also policy makers, sociologists and students of feminism. It is about the breaking up of professional discourse. It demonstrates and signals drastic changes in the social sciences.
Forbidden Narratives explores overlapping layers of voices that convey the social relations of psychiatric survivor participation within a community mental health service system. It is written from the perspective of a woman who, as a mental health professional in Toronto, had a physical and mental breakdown during the course of her work. Ironically, the author had plunged into the very system she had entered as a professional, a health researcher, and an activist.

Reviews - What do customers think about Forbidden Narratives ; Critical Autobiograghy as Social Science (Theory and Practice in Medical Anthropology and International Health)?

A brave, innovative text!  Apr 23, 1998
I was rivetted by Church's work from the opening pages. She has presented an innovative approach to qualitative research wherein one is both research partcipant and researcher. In my doctoral research I have used a similar approach, hence found Church's work most appropriate. Her references have also opened up new territory in qualitative method.
