Jung in Memories, Dreams, Reflections writes of the mentally ill, “What actually takes place inside the mentally ill?”
I would think that a normal procedural question. At least in Jung’s day, it was not. Individuals didn’t matter. More important to collect data. “Patients were labeled, rubber-stamped with a diagnosis, and, for the most part, that settled the matter.”
In nursing homes today, patient centered care is just beginning. Not just for mental disorders, but for disorders of the trunk and limbs as well.
Jung adds, ” Freud introduced psychology to psychiatry.”
And I though I was a late bloomer.
