Renaissance

1400-1700

Renaissance

The Renaissance period was very important in terms of treating the mentally ill.  The poor and the rich differed in treatment options and even in terms of the types of treatment.  Many treatments were used that today would be looked at as appalling, such as electrical shocks and the use of immobilizing devices.  Treatment was different in the industrialized Western Europe than America due to the differences in population density (de Chavez, 2009; Dickinson, 1990; Parry-Jones, 1987).
