Bradley Lewis, psychiatrist and professor at New York University, seeks to position narrative as the unifying force in contemporary psychiatry

Bradley Lewis, psychiatrist and professor at New York University, seeks to position narrative as the unifying force in contemporary psychiatry. Narrative Psychiatry is a manifesto for a narrative consensus in psychiatric practice, a tour through multiple forms of psychotherapy, and not least, a demonstration of the heuristic power of fictional examples to illustrate therapeutic issues. Particular readers might wish the book offered more or less of any of these three objectives, but I cannot imagine anyone being bored. Not least of Lewis’s talents is his capacity to keep the story moving.

Brad Lewis belongs to a small but elite group of psychiatrists whose sensibilities, not to.

Brad Lewis belongs to a small but elite group of psychiatrists whose sensibilities, not to mention their extensive education in other disciplines, position them both inside and outside psychiatry. In his previous work, particularly Moving Beyond Prozac, DSM, and the New Psychiatry: The Birth of Postpsychiatry, Lewis argues for a cultural studies of psychiatry to understand shifting power dynamics in favor of biopsychiatry. In Narrative Psychiatry: How Stories Can Shape Clinical Practice, Lewis builds a bridge between cultural studies of psychiatry and clinical practice, one that offers more detailed attention to the intrinsic value of patients’ stories.

Psychiatry has lagged behind many clinical specialties in recognizing the importance of narrative for understanding and effectively treating disease. With this book, Bradley Lewis makes the challenging and compelling case that psychiatrists need to promote the significance of narrative in their practice as well.

Narrative already holds a prominent place in psychiatry. Patient stories are the foundation for diagnosis and the key to managing treatment and measuring its effectiveness. Even so, psychiatry has paid scant scholarly attention to the intrinsic value of patient stories. Fortunately, the study of narrative outside psychiatry has grown exponentially in recent years, and it is now possible for psychiatry to make considerable advances in its appreciation of clinical stories. Narrative Psychiatry picks up this intellectual opportunity and develops the tools of narrative for psychiatry. Lewis explores the rise of narrative medicine and looks closely at recent narrative approaches to psychotherapy. He uses philosophic and fictional writings, such as Anton Chekhov’s play Ivanov, to develop key terms in narrative theory (plot, metaphor, character, point of view) and to understand the interpretive dimensions of clinical work. Finally, Lewis brings this material back to psychiatric practice, showing how narrative insights can be applied in psychiatric treatments―including the use of psychiatric medications.

Nothing short of a call to rework the psychiatric profession, Narrative Psychiatry advocates taking the inherently narrative-centered patient-psychiatrist relationship to its logical conclusion: making the story a central aspect of treatment.
