The Psychology of Inner Perceptions is a new branch of psychology. It has its roots in Chinese culture, especially in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The orientation of perception of being either inward or outward marks the distinction between the methodology of existing branches of psychology and that of the Psychology of Inner Perceptions. In the former case, the investigator studies the mind of the subject based on reasoning and analyzing. The mind of the investigator orients outwardly in order to identify the problem and obtain information from the subject. In the latter case however the mind of the investigator orients inwardly, connects to the mind of the subject, and directly perceives information from the inside. Ill information gives rise to a variety of mental disorders and even physical diseases. Pinpointing and erasing it from the inside can save a lot of energy. It is significant for both the patients and psychologists. It is widely recognized that getting mental diseases is an occupational hazard in the psychology profession. In the west, many psychologists suffer from mental disturbance after working for years. Their sicknesses are not "infected" by patients but caused by over consumption of mental energy. Pinpointing and erasing ill information from the inside is simple, direct and costs only a little energy. It can reduce the consumption of psychologists' mental energy and helps solve the big problem in the field of psychology --- the psychological crisis of the psychologists. Every point concerning Traditional Chinese Medicine in this book is illustrated based on Qi-monism Theory. Qi is the basic component of everything. The world originates from a formless matter --- qi. It evolves as qi evolves. Qi becomes increasingly complex till it reaches a critical value in terms of both complexity and subtlety. At this point, the Shen takes form. The Shen functions as the ultimate commander, while emotions, minds and characters are its subordinates. The former can either give permission to the rise of emotions or "dissolve" them when they begin to emerge. It can also change the pattern of the motion and transformation of the five Zang-organs' qi to change one's characters. Once the Shen has fully taken its role as the "True Self", one is no longer a slave of emotions, minds and characters, but their master. When the Shen permeates into an object, it can change the time-space structure of the object with the information it conveys. It may even replace the old time-space structure with a new one, or induce a new time-space structure in it.Humans are the product of the universe. That the product of the universe reflects on the universe is a reflection of the universe on itself, while the reflection of the humans on their mind is a reflection of the universe on the most advanced product of its own. When the mind starts to perceive it own self instead of speculating on the outside world, the world becomes self-aware. And when the mind withdraws into itself, the subject and the object of perceptions are unified.

China's massive economic restructuring in recent decades has generated alarming incidences of mental disorder affecting over one hundred million people. This timely book provides an anthropological analysis of mental health in China through an exploration of psychology, psychiatry, psychotherapy and psychosocial practices, and the role of the State. The book offers a critical study of new characteristics and unique practices of Chinese psychology and cultural tradition, highlighting the embodied, holistic, heart-based approach to mental health. Drawing together voices from her own research and a broad range of theory, Jie Yang addresses the mental health of a diverse array of people, including members of China's elite, the middle class and underprivileged groups. She argues that the Chinese government aligns psychology with the imperatives and interests of state and market, mobilizing concepts of mental illness to resolve social, moral, economic, and political disorders while legitimating the continued rule of the party through psychological care and permissive empathy. This thoughtful analysis will appeal to those across the social sciences and humanities interested in well-being in China and the intersection of society, politics, culture, and mental health.
