Publikation: KonferencebidragKonferenceabstrakt til konferenceForskningpeer review


In psychiatry in Denmark health and social care is being replaced by diagnostic categorisations and a more consumerized relation between the health professionals and patients as self- responsible citizens. Increasing medicalization and New Public Management reforms and standardization for cost- effectiveness intertwine with a neo-liberal health policy of a “user- focus and user involvement”,that transforms psychiatric practice. Through the micro-sociological study of professionals working with patients in psychiatry, it is illuminated how patients/clients are objectified and left to care for themselves, and how professionalism is transformed into manualisation of practice, and test technologies replace meeting “significant others”.
