Evolution of Psychology

Every generation of psychologist seems to engage in practices that the next generation looks back upon with concern and regret. Many of the former treatments for the mentally ill are viewed as unethical.

2) Comment about a form of treatment used with the mentally ill during a particular decade in the 20th century. Include information about the key historical events that were happening around the time this treatment was being used, as well identifying the popular culture of the time.
3) How might the psychological theories of the time have influenced attitudes fostering discrimination of people with mental illness?

6) Conclude this presentation with a question raised about a current treatment that may be parallel to your findings.
