Item description for Psychiatric Cultures Compared: Psychiatry and Mental Health Care in the Twentieth Century by Marijke Gijswijt-Hofstra, Harry Oosterhuis, Joost Vijselaar & Hugh Freeman...
The comparative global history of mental health care in the twentieth century remains relatively uncharted territory. Psychiatric Cultures Compared offers an overview of various national psychiatric cultures, comparing, for example, advances in Dutch psychiatry with developments abroad. Wide-ranging essays cover analyses of the field of psychiatric nursing, the changing use of psychotropic medicine, the emergence of in- and outpatient mental health sectors, the rise of the anti-psychiatry movement, and a critical look at modern day deinstitutionalization.
