About The Book

Stroke Phenomenology: Why a Stroke on That Day and Under These Circumstances?

The time when a stroke occurs is not trivial; for some, it is the date of an anniversary or a meaningful and emotionally overinvested event. Testimonials presented in this book provide a better understanding of how the psychosocial, affective and symbolic factors can be determinants of a stoke's occurrence.

This stroke phenomenology is an expression of the typical framework of a topology of the processes of symptom formation; it elaborates the theoretical and clinical methodology of a phenoanalytical interview which is based on the main theses of phenomenology, of psychoanalysis and of existential analysis.

Written at the limits of the philosophical, clinical and scientific approach, this book may be of interest as much to health care professionals who work with individuals who have had a stroke, as to academic researchers using the phenomenological approach. This book will naturally be of interest to the general public, especially the individual who has had a stroke and their relatives.
