Project description:Our project is focused on differential diagnosis of psycho-spiritual crisis, with a distinction from mental diseases, and possibilities of psychological, educational, social and spiritual impact on it. This phenomenon appears in the phase of spiritual maturation and transformation of personality. It makes itself known through temporary mental and social disorders, but with signs of mental disease. Stanislav Grof defines it as episodes of extraordinary experiences, including changes in mind, perception, emotional and psycho-somatic functions, which disturbs the boundaries of self.The American Psychiatrists Association (APA) has labelled it as a spiritual emergency (DSM IV), as non-psychotic diagnosis. They recommend non-psychiatric treatment. APA advises to treat it with psychological, social, educational and spiritual methods. At presents, we still do not have relevant diagnostic methods and techniques for distinction from mental disease. Most psychologists and psychiatrists do not differentiate psycho-spiritual crisis from psychotic diseases, mainly schizophrenia, because of prejudices towards spiritual experiences.
