Event Details

Why Study the History of Psychotherapy?

In the early sixties, Marshall McLuhan proclaimed that ‘ours is the century of the psychiatrist's couch’. Suspended between science, medicine, religion, art and philosophy, the advent of modern psychotherapies represents one of the distinctive features of twentieth century Western societies. Yet their historical study lags behind their societal impact. This talk explores how this study may help illumine the way in which these practices have and continue to shape contemporary notions of psychological disorder, well-being and identity itself.
