Abnormal behaviors, the process of emotional contagion remains a powerful influence on behavior (see the feature “Examining the Evidence: Modern-Day Mass Hysteria”). The Renaissance period (14th to 17th Century) marked a second time of enlightenment in the treatment of mental illnesses in Europe. Much of this transformation can be traced back to the Dutch physician Johann Weyer (1515–1588) and the Swiss physician Paracelsus (1493–1541). Weyer was the first physician to specialize in the treatment of mental illness, and Paracelsus refuted the idea that abnormal behaviors were linked to demonic possession.
Hispanics are more likely to have mood disorders such as depression than are non-Hispanic whites. In addition, as we shall see throughout this book, culture may influence how symptoms are expressed. Socioeconomic status (SES), defined by family income and educational achievement, is another important factor that affects the prevalence of psychological disorders in the general population. Except for drug and alcohol abuse, which occurs more often among those with the middle education level (a high school graduate but no college degree), psychological disorders occur most frequently among those with the lowest incomes and the least education.
Many temples were established throughout Greece to honor Asclepius, one of which was the first known sanctuary for mental disorders, offering biological (mandrake root and opium), physical (music, massage, drama), and psychological treatments (dream interpretation; Roccatagliata, 1997). During this period, mental illnesses were considered to result from either traumatic experiences or an imbalance in fluids (such as blood) found within the body. These fluids were called humors. Often considered the father of medicine, Hippocrates (460–377 BC) was the most famous Greek physician.
