Power and Conflict in the 'nest' -One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey.
[ send me this paper ]
(5 pp). On one level this book is about society's dislike for, and eventual destruction of the unrepentant non-conformer. But on another level it is exactly what the story line portrays - a brilliant look at the abuse, oppression and even murderous nature of the modern 'mental-health' system. Action plays out through the conflicts of McMurphy and Nurse Ratched.

Psychoanalytic Understanding and Myths, Folktales, and Narrative
[ send me this paper ]
This 20 page report discusses the fact that modern psychoanalysis is a multifaceted discipline that depends on classic Freudian explanations as well as more contemporary empirical practices. Social scientists, researchers into human psychology, writers, and even “pop psychologists” have demonstrated an affinity for the mythological and heroic aspects of the human psyche. Individuals have been able to gain a better understanding of and appreciation for their own capabilities through their association with a particular culture, classic mythology, or spiritualism. As it is used and referenced in the practice of psychoanalysis, cultural myth and narrative serve to offer greater insights into collective human thinking. Bibliography lists 18 sources.

Psychoeducation and Schizophrenia: A Contrast of Two Families
[ send me this paper ]
A 15 page discussion of the importance of dealing with families in the treatment of schizophrenia. Observes that family reaction to a formal diagnosis can vary from acceptance of such a diagnosis and subsequent cooperation with psychiatric professionals to rejection of the diagnosis and outright belligerence when it comes time to deal with those in charge of guiding their family member to recovery. Contends that such recovery balances, however, on the ability of the therapist to direct intervention at the family unit as a whole even though only subsystems or individuals from the family are actually seen by the therapist. Concludes that family acceptance of the diagnosis of schizophrenia and their cooperation with psychiatric professionals is, therefore, critical in the treatment of this condition. Bibliography lists 12 sources.
