Case reports in the field of psychiatry and psychology in Polish – a text model or an exception? Part I.
Languages of publication
The aim of this series of articles is to identify and characterize the main linguistic and struc-tural features of medical case reports in the field of psychiatry and psychology. The series of papers is divided into to two parts: theoretical and empirical. The main purpose of the first part is to present the theoretical background of the discourse of psychiatry and psychology as well as the characteristics of case reports of these disciplines. In the paper, the present authors also demonstrate the structure of the case reporting of psychiatry and psychology, including the instruction for authors given by the American Psychological Association. Also, the narrative approach, the patient’s stories appearing in these texts as well as one of the main elements of the case reports, i.e. ‘case conceptualization’ are discussed. The second part will be an empirical one. The main research question is whether the case reports of psychiatry and psychology are typical representatives of the microgenre or whether they are different with respect to particular levels of the texts. The case reports of psychiatry and psychology will be compared with the case reports of clinical and surgical disciplines, for instance from cardiology or otorhinolaryngology.
