Good morning Wednesday!!! It's a beautiful morning today and the weather is warming up! Hope everyone is having a great start of the day! ❤❤❤ 。 。 🧠 My book review for .... .... The Great Pretender is an interesting and an eye-opening book about the way we understand mental health. What is mental illness? How do we define and diagnose mental illness? Is there a reliable method to diagnose mental illness accurately and correctly? 。 。 🧠 Therefore, "If sanity and insanity exist, how shall we know them?" This book explores this question by focusing on the 1973 groundbreaking study by Dr. David Rosenhan. Eight healthy and sane men and women (including the doctor himself) admitted themselves into different asylums as "pseudopatients" to test the reliability and legitimacy of psychiatry's labels. The findings of this study was later on published as "On Being Sane in Insane Places" and became the catalyst for changes and reform in mental institutions and the psychological/psychiatry field. However, further investigations by Cahalan reveals that there were discrepancies and inconsistences in Rosenhan's study. This mystery has eluded us for almost fifty years and one will wonder just how much of this groundbreaking study is real? 。 。 🧠 I really enjoyed this book for the information I learnt about Dr. Rosenhan's "pseudopatients" study. It is really fascinating! And of course, Cahalan's in-depth research in this mental health topic is amazing! In the end, I still wish that this book is written in a more organized and pellucid manner. 。 。 🧠 For my full review please visit https://www.goodreads.com/thereadingowlvina _____________________________________ #susannahcahalan #onbeingsaneininsaneplaces #brainonfire #thegreatpretender #mentalillness #mentalhealth #pseudopatient #davidrosenhan #psychology #psychiatry #asylum #nonfiction #schizophrenia #bookworm #bibliophagist #bookphotography #readersofinstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #bookstagramsupport #bookreview #honestreview #calgaryreads #calgarybooks #calgary #bookishphoto #igreads #kobolife @susannahcahalan5 @kobobooks
