Example text

Three major models that have guided us date back to the beginnings of civilization. Humans have always supposed that agents outside our bodies and environment influence our behavior, thinking, and emotions. These agents, which might be divinities, demons, spirits, or other phenomena such as magnetic fields or the moon or the stars, are the driving forces behind the supernatural model. In addition, since ancient Greece, the mind has often been called the soul or the psyche and considered separate from the body.

Individual attention clearly emphasized positive consequences for appropriate interactions and behavior; the staff made a point of modeling this behavior. Lectures on various interesting subjects were provided, and restraint and seclusion were eliminated. Once again, little is new under the sun. The principles of moral therapy date back to Plato and beyond. C. housed the chronically ill, including those with psychological disorders. Here, patients were well cared for, massaged, and provided with soothing music.

For example, a mental health professional might be thoroughly trained in a single theoretical approach, such as psychoanalysis or behavior therapy (both described later in the chapter), and then use that approach on every disorder. More recently, as our science has advanced, we have developed specific effective treatments that do not always adhere neatly to one theoretical approach or another but that have grown out of a deeper understanding of the disorder in question. For this reason, there are no separate chapters in this book on such types of treatment approaches as psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, or humanistic.
