2592 - Where Have All the Normals Gone? A History of Psychiatric Diagnosis from Demons to DSM
Doesn't it seem as if everyone you know has been diagnosed with a psychological illness or is on medication? Through lecture and discussion we will explore the explosion and diagnostic inflation in psychiatry and its implications, including the medicalization of ordinary life. What is (and is not) a mental disorder? And who is "normal"? We will trace the history of psychiatric diagnosis from shamans and shrinks and then look at the fads of past, present, and future. Lecture (plus Questions), Facilitated Discussion
