Example text

Freire, 1968, p. 35) Objectivism is seen as a world without people; subjectivism, conversely, is people without a world. While these two extremes may seem unreal, our view is that the mental health programs most commonly run are subjectivist in nature, while most of the newer administrative efforts at systematizing mental health planning and management embody objectivist characteristics. As we have discussed above, the primary theoretical paradigm that has been imposed upon mental patients and ex-patients is medical/ psychopathological in origin.

Subjective validation occurs only through this process of rehumanization, of becoming a participant in producing the social world. But this process must be initiated by those not so fully submerged, by those capable of critical reflection about exploitation, domination and manipulation. This act of leadership, of teaching, begins with the effort to identify aspects of the ‘no exit’ reality which can be contemplated. Freire refers to this engagement activity as limitsetting or problem-posing: the task is to identify some area of daily life about which former patients have a concern, usually voiced as a complaint.

To accomplish this preliminary task, it becomes necessary to create what we refer to as a ‘problem definitional’ level of theory. Problem defining theory mediates between the more global theory of society which establishes a larger context for understanding the broad policy issues and direct implications (for an elaboration of this approach, see Vicente Navarro, ‘Health and the Corporate Society’, Social Policy, Jan/Feb, 1975), and the articulation of practice theory, the task of the next chapter of this book.
