FREE Course: Psychosis: What is it?

Various video presentations and articles help you review different perspectives about psychosis. You can take a quiz to contemplate how symptoms might indicate "psychosis".

“Emma Bragdon is doing excellent work and I know it is making a difference in people’s lives.” 

                  -Stanley Krippner, PhD. Editor of “Varieties of Anomalous Experience”


Psychosis describes an extreme state of consciousness.  Is it a disease? Meet seasoned professionals who share perspectives gained after decades of experience.

Your Take Home: 

A new, more humane, way of looking at the extreme state we've called “psychosis” and ways of managing this extreme state that are natural and can be so effective they replace pharmaceuticals.  A FREE pdf book, too!

  1. You get an overview that defines psychosis through the eyes of some transformative, articulate, progressive psychiatrists and psychologists.   

  2. You will see how we have formerly looked at the manifestations of extreme states as a mental “illness” and shunned those who have the “illness”.  

  3. You will consider:  What has been labeled as “psychosis” is now considered a very human response to trauma and overwhelming conditions–perhaps not an illness at all!

Sparing You a Google Hunt:

The  videos you see are unique or were thoughtfully curated from the public domain by a healthcare provider.  They offer current info of particular importance to understanding psychosis.  We trust that our selections and organization of the materials will replace the need for you to get mired in a hunt through the jungle of the web.

Agenda:

  • Overview: Defining “Psychosis”
  • Jim van Os, MD–Normalizing Psychosis (middle photo below)
  • Take the quiz--Have you ever had symptoms?
  • Re-evaluate the conventional view
  • Emma Bragdon, PhD--A New Perspective for Understanding Psychosis 
  • Optional: free book and video by noted psychologist going into more depth

This course is beginning to open many doors as I seek to find new perspectives and novel approaches for healing and understanding mental illness as we currently define it.
