Example text

But their perception of themselves as oppressed is impaired by their submersion in the reality of oppression, (in Freire, 1968, p. 30) Mental patients and ex-patients share in common the characteristics of an object: they are known and acted upon. Freire contrasts ‘objects’ with ‘subjects’: Subjects know and act. Responsible subjects continue to know Practice theory—bridging the gap to action 43 their social world and act to transform it while accountable objects consume aspects of their social world and exist to reproduce it.

A complaint is transformed into a research process of mutual investigation. Questions can often initiate dialogue far Practice theory—bridging the gap to action 47 better than answers—the ex-patient is legitimated as a critical commentator about his/her situation at the same time as the passivity of the complaint is elevated to an issue on which some type of action can be taken. This, in turn, poses the form of expression as a problem. As the complaint becomes objectively received, the object/ex-patient is encouraged to elaborate and to share what she/he knows with peers and is supported to extend questioning and assessing.

And the expatient; and to see how the ex-patient expresses him/her self as a reflection of that subjugation. It requires that manipulation be seen in its objective manifestation, in the continuous psychiatric communication of pathology and decompensation; and to see how being coerced into the behavior and ideology of mental illness presents itself as a form of selfexpression or as a negotiable identity. Entering the reality of the ex-patient, a precondition for dialogue, necessitates a dialectical consciousness: a perspective that sees the interpenetration of objective context with subjectivity.
