Sample text

Psychotherapy has functioned as a mirror of society, in that the work of psychotherapists has highlighted aspects of social life that have been particularly problematic at various times. For example, Freud brought into the open the sexual oppression of the Victorian era, Rogers and many other therapists in the 1950s wrote about the confusion around self and identity that was triggered by post-World War II economic expansion, and currently many therapists are drawing attention to the depression and hopelessness that seems endemic in contemporary society.

During this early period of the growth of the asylums movement, at the beginning of the nineteenth century, the medical profession had relatively little interest in the insane. From the historical investigations carried out by Scull (1975), it can be seen that the medical profession gradually came to recognize that there were profits to be made from the ‘trade in lunacy’, not only from having control of the state asylums, which were publicly funded, but also from running asylums for the insane members of the upper classes.

This shift was accompanied by ensuing change in the way that society responded to the needs of people who had problems in their lives. Before this, the problems in living that people encountered were primarily dealt with from a religious perspective, implemented at the level of the local community (McNeill 1951; Neugebauer 1978, 1979). Anyone who was seriously disturbed or insane was essentially tolerated as part of the community. Less extreme forms of emotional or interpersonal problems were dealt with by the local priest: for example, through the Catholic confessional.
