one of many fascinations of psychiatry is that it truly is amenable to many various methods. In trying to account for psychological affliction, for instance, it's pos­ sible to discover the that means and importance of signs within the psychody­ namic experience, to ascertain the social determinants of affliction, or to undertake an es­ sentially organic perspective in investigating hyperlinks among physiological and mental disorder ..
