Are you ready for psychosocial studies?

Another way to look at the complicated lives existence  and relationships of madness! Psychosocial Studies looks at how psych and social experiences connect and influence each other. This could be another way to talk about mental health issues / disabilities / medical / economic relationships.

Psychological issues and subjective experiences cannot be abstracted from societal, cultural, and historical contexts; nor can they be deterministically reduced to the social. Similarly, social and cultural worlds are shaped by psychological processes and intersubjective relations.

Psychosocial Studies is characterised by

  • (a) its explicit inter or trans-disciplinarity,
  • (b) its development of non-positivistic theory, method and praxis and
  • (c) its orientation towards progressive social and personal change.

Psychosocial research draws inspiration from a range of sources including sociology, psychoanalysis, critical psychology, critical theory, post-structuralism, process philosophy, feminism, post-colonial theory, queer theory and affect theory. Various “dialects” are in the process of emergence.
