Titre: Implementing psychiatry as risk management: DSM-IV as a postmodern taxonomy Auteur:Holmes, Colin A; Warelow, Philip Sujet:Postmodernism ; DSM-IV ; Psychiatric Diagnosis ; Risk ; Medicine ; Social Sciences (General) ; Public Health Description:
It is suggested in this paper that DSM-IV serves to psychiatrise everyday life by deconstructing the traditional distinctions between the mentally disordered and the mentally healthy. It allows for continuing psychiatric expansionism by enabling the nosological territory to expand without limit, invading that behavioural area once differentiated as 'healthy' or 'normal'. According to DSM-IV, all people exhibit more or less psychological and behavioural phenomena which can be taken as indicative of mental disorder. In the face of potentially unlimited application, the decision to apply the term 'mental disorder' in any particular case is removed from the realm of nosology and re-located within decisions regarding the security of the social system, manifest as risk posed to the individual and the community. It is suggested that psychiatry has thus become a system of risk management and that DSM-IV colludes in and facilitates that strategy.

Titre: Conceal or reveal? Patterns of self-disclosure of long-term conditions at work by health professionals in a large regional Australian health service Auteur:Lindsay, David; Brennan, Daryl; Lindsay, Daniel; Holmes, Colin; Smyth, Wendy Sujet:Workplace Health ; Health Professionals ; Self-Disclosure ; Long-Term Conditions ; Medicine Description:
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to describe the patterns of self-disclosure of long-term conditions at work by health professionals in a large regional health service. Recent research by the authors has reported on the self-reported long-term conditions of nursing, medical and allied health staff within a large regional hospital and health service in North Queensland, Australia. Data regarding self-disclosure of health information were gathered during those two previous studies, but has yet to be reported. This current study thus offers the opportunity to explore and describe patterns of self-disclosure by a multi-disciplinary cohort of health professionals within that regional health service. Design/methodology/approach This current study was a component of two larger studies, reported elsewhere, which explored long-term conditions among health professional staff at a large regional health service in North Queensland, Australia. A cross-sectional survey design was used....
