"Beautiful, original, daring."
—Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul
Where has the imagination gone in current psychiatric practice?
While Psychiatry Slept dares to ask this question. It challenges psychiatry’s literalistic theories and demonstrates how the imagination is always revealing itself through nighttime dreams, physical symptoms, hallucinations, delusions, and synchronicity. Using material from actual patient cases over his thirty-five years as a psychiatrist, the author weaves a collection of fictional stories showcasing the vibrant realm of the imaginal—that region between mind and body—returning psychotherapy to its original meaning: “therapy of the soul.”
