Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Anti-psychiatry is a movement encompassing a diverse set of theories and practices that challenge, or stand in contrast to, the fundamental theories and practices of psychiatry, which is the branch of medicine concerned with what it describes as diagnosing, managing and treating (sometimes by force) what it classes as mental illness/disorder. The history of anti-psychiatry includes a period centred on the 1960s and 1970s when antipsychiatry came to the fore, as well as precursors in previous decades and centuries, and more recent developments. The first widespread challenge to the prevailing medical approach in Western countries occurred in the late 18th century. Part of the progressive Age of Enlightenment, a "moral treatment" movement challenged the harsh, pessimistic, somatic (body-based) and restraint-based approaches that prevailed in the system of hospitals and "madhouses" for people considered mentally disturbed, who were generally seen as wild animals without reason.
