Document Summary

Psychiatry is at a x-roads (asylums vs. psychopharmaceutical revolution: paradigm challenged by social groups (black panthers, universities by students, as an authority under attack. Radical 1960s attack on authority of all types, rise of counterculture. New position of psychiatrists as real doctors": biology changed practice, chloropromazine first drug revolutionized. Madness and civilization (book) (1961: mental illness is a social and cultural construct of 18th c. Enlightenment: psychiatrists seeking own fortune by locking up unreasonables who don"t fit with social system, growing state of authoritarianism confinement to stamp out deviancy. Social psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, existentialist calling into question notions underpinning psychiatry itself. Attacked medical model: biological psychiatry had no understanding of physical pathology and contravened conventions of medicine. A sane response to insane situations: society causes mental illness. Psychotic symptoms were attempts to communicate: mental illness as a cathartic experience, psychiatrist must decode" message, ex, if thought they were jesus christ may just feel they are suffering the sins of the world.
