About this research[edit source]

Recovery psychology is a combined study of psychology and the recovery model, concept, process, movement, behavior and expeirince. This research is based on the intention of literary experimentation to validate if such concepts are compatible. The question being: Is recovery from mental illness a behavior, expeirince or a process which is equivalent to pathology? The precipitators of this question derive partly from positive psychology and other forms of philosophy that shape the studies or schools of thought in psychology; which have brought this editor to an understanding that abnormal psychology or clinical psychology and sometimes refered to as deviant psychology, focuses on illness and disability or medication and psychiatric interventions with little notion of recovery; or otherwise evidence that the interventions improve the patients condition, this is termed as the medical model it is rooted more in the bio-chemical theory; with the textbooks and course materials seemingly devoted to bio-chemistry or the history of Sigmund Freud, with very little consideration for the psychosocial factors which disable and confound a person with a psychiatric condition; this is the recovery model. The idea that there is no psychology literature for academic settings, textbooks, course materials etc. written fully from a recovery prespective; only from the clinical prespective. It has been determined by experts that recovery oriented interventions and philosophy has improved the outcomes for persons with psychiatric conditions, than the medical model alone. It would only logically figure that there should be a recovery psychology. --Recovery Psychology 02:15, 16 January 2008 (UTC)[reply]

I don't know if the neurodiversity movement really fits in here, although easily it would a subject for recovery psychology to discuss...but it would be more so neurodiversity psychology, the psychology of a movement?--recovery psychologist 04:11, 10 September 2008 (UTC)[reply]
