Leczenie bez zgody — dialog czy „psychiatryczne gry językowe”?              37-44
Psychoter 2009;149(2):37-44
Anti-psychiatry as well as various schools stemming from social constructionism used to criticize psychiatric inpatient wards and their practices. Antipsychiatrists have pointed the violence taking place on these wards, which consists in turning the free subject into an object, yet social constructionists have underlined the disabling power of language practices (so called 'psychiatric language plays'), which 'takes off the ability to speak' from those who are diagnosed as mentally ill. The aim of this article is the discussion with the mentioned above critique from the perspective of the team working within the context of the psychiatric inpatient ward. The example presented here shows the chance for dialogue with the patient even in the case of actual forced treatment undertaken/applied according to the legally binding Act of the Protection of the Mental Health.
