Psychiatry, Psychology,

PSYCHIATRY [Greek: psyche, breath + iatreia, healing]  The word psyche was adapted to represent the mind or the soul. Cicero (106–43 BC), the Roman philosopher and orator, suggested that body ailments could result from emotional factors and proposed several ideas which are still fundamental to psychiatry and psychotherapy. He disputed the idea of Hippocrates (460–359 BC) that black bile caused melancholia, and attributed the condition to psychological difficulties. Areteaus the Cappodocian (AD 88–138) was a pioneer in establishing psychiatry as a branch of medicine and wrote on melancholia and madness, differentiating senile dementia from mania. St Augustine wrote on introspective psychiatry in Confessions in AD 386. In England  a book on psychiatry, A Treatise on Melancholy was published by Timothy Bright (1551–1615) in 1586. This inspired Robert Burton’s(1577–1640) popular book, Anatomy of Melancholy published in 1621. A license to practice psychiatry in England was granted to John Freeman in 1600.  A book on clinical psychiatry, Treatise on Madness, was published by William Battie (1703–1776) in 1758. Benjamin Rush (1745–1813), the first psychiatrist in America, published Diseases of the Mind  and used occupational therapy in treatment of mental disease. Modern theories and practice of psychiatry were developed in Vienna, Austria and Germany at the end of the 19th century. Eugen Bleuler (1857–1939), professor of psychiatry at the Burgholzli Hospital in Vienna where Carl Gustav Jung (1875–1961) was a student, coined the term ‘schizophrenia’ in 1911 to include dementia praecox, and the terms autism and ambivalence. Psychoanalysis was introduced by Sigmund Freud (1856–1939) in 1893. Henry Maudsley (1835–1918), an English psychiatrist from Yorkshire advocated the idea that insanity is fundamentally a disease of the body. His The Pathology and Physiology of the Mind published in 1867, is a classic in English psychiatry. Two English neurologists, Sir John Charles Bucknill (1817–1897) and Daniel Hack Tuke (1827–1895) advocated removal of physical restraints from institutionalized mental patients. Jean Etienne Dominique Esquirol (1772–1840), a French physician from Toulouse, was one of the first lecturers in psychiatry at Salpetrière in 1811. Philippe Pinel(1745–1826), a neuropsychiatrist in Paris, identified insanity as an illness and treated patients on a scientific and humane basis around 1800.
