Sample text

One treatment for abnormality in the Stone Age and well into the Middle Ages may have been to drill holes in the skull of a person displaying abnormal behavior to allow the spirits to depart (Feldman & Goodrich, 2001). Archaeologists have found skulls dating back to a half-million years ago in which sections of the skull have been drilled or cut away. The tool used for this drilling is called a trephine, and the operation is called trephination. Some historians believe that people who were seeing or hearing things that were not real and people who were chronically sad were subjected to this form of brain surgery (Feldman & Goodrich, 2001).

Beers was hospitalized, first in a private mental hospital but later, when his family ran out of money, in public mental hospitals. The study of abnormal psychology is the study of people, like Clifford Beers, who suffer mental, emotional, and often physical pain, often referred to as psychopathology. Sometimes the experiences of people with psychopathology are as unusual as those that this young woman describes: In the early 1900s, there were no effective treatments for symptoms such as those Beers suffered.

In this work, Freud became convinced that much of the mental life of an individual remains hidden from consciousness. This view was further supported by Freud’s interactions with Pierre Janet (1858–1947) in Paris. Janet was investigating multiple personality disorder, in which people appear to have multiple, distinct personalities, each of which operates independently of the others, often not knowing the others exist (Matarazzo, 1985). When he returned to Vienna, Freud worked with Josef Breuer (1842–1925), another physician interested in hypnosis and in the unconscious processes behind psychological problems.
