Ryan, Sara – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2018

Nolte, Lizette – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2018
The experience of psychosis can sweep into a life like a violent storm. In this paper, I first attempt to fully imagine the experience of such a storm by drawing on first person accounts and then consider the clinical encounter between mental health practitioners and those who find themselves amidst this storm.
