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).

    I have really learned new things out of your blog post. One more thing to I have noticed is that generally, FSBO sellers may reject you. Remember, they might prefer to not use your companies. But if you maintain a gradual, professional partnership, offering assistance and being in contact for around four to five weeks, you will usually be able to win interviews. From there, a listing follows. Many thanks
