Attuned Understanding and Psychotic Suffering: A Qualitative Study of Healthcare Professionals’ Experiences in Communicating and Interacting with Patients

Sammendrag

This study was initiated to examine how experiences with mental illness are perceived by health care workers and how insight affects assessment of their perspective and involvement. Lack of insight gives rise to problems concerning communication: If we expect what the person says and does not to have any meaning, how then can we establish relationship with based on understanding? This study was based on in-depth interviews with 11 mental healthcare workers. Participants were recruited from a variety of institutions and professional backgrounds. The following topics were discussed with the participants: lack of insight, awareness of illness, and coping strategies, as well as how these factors affected treatment, cooperation, and participation. The participants describe attuned understanding as an other-oriented process, involving sensitivity to many aspects of the person’s situation. Understanding is sought and is established through emotional, human contact and practical interaction and ends with new articulated understanding. The results suggest that the process described here can be viewed as other-oriented understanding and not merely sympathy. It is an interdependent process of imagining oneself in the other’s place and depends on awareness of the nature of this process and on sensitivity to the persons’ expressions.
