ORTIZ LOBO, Alberto. Therapeutic relationship and treatments in postpsychiatry. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2017, vol.37, n.132, pp.553-573. ISSN 2340-2733.

The value of ‘truth’ in the narratives of modern psychiatry, its focus on the individual and the provision of technology, determine a vertical therapeutic relationship. Post-psychiatry challenges these premises and proposes a horizontal therapeutic relationship where the voice of the users is crucial, the contexts take on a greater role in providing other meanings and ethics is placed before technology.

Keywords : Postpsychiatry; therapeutic relation; therapeutic alliance; psychiatric treatment.
