An extraordinary account of a nurse’s life behind the locked doors of a secure psychiatric ward. Dennis O’Donnell started work as an orderly in the Intensive Psychiatric Care Unit of a large hospital in Scotland in 2000. In his daily life he encountered fear, violence and despair but also a considerable amount of care and compassion. Recounting the stories of the patients he worked with, and those of his colleagues on the ward, he examines major mental health conditions, methods of treatment – medication, how religion, sex, wealth, health and drugs can bear influence on mental health, the prevailing attitudes to psychiatric illness, the authorities, the professionals & society. What emerges is a document of humanity and humour, a remarkable memoir that sheds light on a world that still remains largely unknown. ‘This is a superb study of people whose minds have gone wrong, and the art of caring for them’ Evening Standard

A dynamic and systematic new approach to experimental and clinical psychology. The author uses a wide range of data from a vast number of experimental and clinical studies to demonstrate how the different levels of expectation and goal achievement can be studied objectively. Building from simple to highly complex schemas, he conceptualizes hope and its counterpart, hopelessness, as both necessary and vital to motivation, action and non-action (lethargy) in animal as well as human behaviour.
