Macht in der Psychiatrie. Ist die Machtbeschreibung von by Lisa Adlhoch

By Lisa Adlhoch

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Medizin und Gesundheit, observe: 1,0, Fachhochschule Regensburg (FAKULTÄT ANGEWANDTE SOZIAL- UND GESUNDHEITSWISSENSCHAFTEN), Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Psychische Krankheiten werden in der heutigen Gesellschaft immer noch zu den Tabuthemen gezählt. guy spricht nicht darüber. guy setzt sich nicht mit der Thematik auseinander. guy möchte auch keinen Menschen mit Wahnvorstellungen in seiner Mitte haben – dieser könnte ja für einen oder sein Umfeld gefährlich sein oder sogar angreifen wegen seiner kranken Gedanken. Aber einsperren sollte guy denjenigen auch nicht, das wäre unmenschlich.

Dies ist wohl die allgemeine Ansicht zur Behandlung von psychisch kranken Mitmenschen. Niemand redet wirklich offen über eine Störung der Psyche, über Wahnvorstellungen, Suizidversuche oder Fremdaggression. Damit sollen sich nur Spezialisten beschäftigen. Diese Spezialisten sollen jedoch menschlich mit den Betroffenen umgehen und nicht mit Zwang und Gewalt handeln.

Foucault hat eine Vielzahl von Werken verfasst und Vorlesungen gehalten. Er zählt zu einer der bedeutendsten Philosophen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Vor allem das Thema Macht und dessen Beziehungen tauchen immer wieder auf. Foucault vertritt einen eindeutigen Standpunkt gegenüber der Arbeit und den Machtverhältnissen in der Psychiatrie.

Daher möchte ich mich in dieser Arbeit mit dem Vergleich von Foucaults Ansicht zu psychiatrischen Anstalten beschäftigen und diese mit der Arbeit in der heutigen Psychiatrie vergleichen. Wie beschreibt Foucault die Arbeit mit psychischen Kranken und welche Macht und in welchem Maße herrscht diese auf die Betroffenen in solchen Einrichtungen. Sind die Machtverhältnisse wie Foucault sie damals beschrieben hat heute noch spürbar? Wie ist die Arbeit heute in einer Psychiatrie, wie kommt es zu einer Einweisung in eine geschlossene Station und wer entscheidet dies? Wie ist der Umgang mit den Patienten und welche Behandlungsmethoden gibt es noch? used to be wird getan, wenn die psychotischen Patienten nicht mit der Therapie einverstanden sind - kann guy den Willen des Betroffenen einfach ignorieren?

Zunächst wird auf Foucault und seine Ansicht zur Psychiatrie eingegangen. Anschließend wird die heutige Arbeit von psychiatrischen Institutionen betrachtet, um schlussendlich eine Gegenüberstellung zu erzielen.

Das gaben die beiden Organisationen unter Berufung auf eine neue Studie bekannt.“ Für niedergelassene Fachärzte werden diese Regionen wegen fehlender Infrastrukturen und attraktiven Freizeitangeboten immer unattraktiver und deshalb wird guy dort auch zukünftig nicht mehr flächendeckend die Anzahl an Fachärzten vorfinden, wie sie für eine effiziente und umfassende Patientenversorgung von Nöten wäre.
