Constructing Panic by Lisa Capps
Book DescriptionThis text offers an analysis of one patient's experience of agoraphobia. In this collaboration between a clinical psychologist and a linguist, the authors propose a view of agoraphobia as a communicative disorder. In a marriage of psychology and linguistics, the book argues that for all its frustrations as an instrument, language is potent, the primary medium for symbolizing constructions of reality.
