Description

Psychiatry regularly comes under attack as a way of caring for and controlling the mentally ill. Originally published in 1986, this title explores the history and theory of psychiatry to illuminate current practice at the time, and shows why mental health services had developed in particular ways. The book was invaluable for all those who needed to understand the problems and processes behind current psychiatric practice at the time - sociologists and psychologists, psychiatrists and doctors, social workers, and health service planners and administrators - and will still be of historical interest today.show more
