  • Psychiatry was a branch in the field of medicine that dealt with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental, behavioral, and emotional disorders. Psychiatry used a combination of psychology and drugs. One who practiced in this field was known as a psychiatrist. One of Doctor Phlox's many medical degrees was in psychiatry. (ENT: "A Night in Sickbay") According to Doctor Elizabeth Dehner's personnel file, she was originally posted to the Aldebaron colony for participation in tests and studies of other esper-oriented beings, which was the subject of a thesis that she was having published in association with the College of Medical Sciences of the Tri-Planetary Academy, during the early-2260s. (TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before" display graphic) Dehner later transferred to the USS Enterprise from the Aldebaron colony, in 2265. She joined the life sciences department, assigned to the study of "crew reaction in emergency conditions." (TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before" ) For one of Harry Mudd's many offenses, he was sentenced to psychiatric treatment. However, the effectiveness of said treatment had been disputed. (TOS: "Mudd's Women" ) When Joe Tormolen (who was infected with polywater intoxication) attempted to commit suicide in 2266 and was later placed under restraint in sickbay, Captain James T. Kirk inquired if there was any information in Tormolen's record – namely, his psychiatric file or personality quotients – that might indicate why he was trying to kill himself. Commander Spock told Kirk that Tormolen probably wasn't attempting to do so, despite the fact that his capacity for self-doubt had always been rather high. (TOS: "The Naked Time" ) After Jean-Luc Picard fell under the control of the Beta Renner cloud entity in 2364 and the senior staff of the USS Enterprise-D became suspicious of his behavior, First Officer William T. Riker had Dr. Beverly Crusher order medical and psychiatric exams on the captain, in order to back up their claim that he had lost his ability to command. (TNG: "Lonely Among Us" ) In 2371, Quark illegally accessed Deep Space 9's personnel file on Kira Nerys, where he was able to download her voiceprint, retinal scan, and psychiatric profile, all in order to create a hologram of Kira for his client Tiron. (DS9: "Meridian") In response to the absence of a ship's counselor on board the USS Voyager, The Doctor, who was not originally programmed with psychotherapeutic capabilities, developed a psychiatric subroutine in 2374 to add to his program. In doing so, he felt he would make himself "even more valuable" to the crew than he already was. (VOY: "Retrospect") In 2375, Nog remained under constant psychiatric care for two months following the loss of his leg. After that time, it was revealed that his counseling sessions were going nowhere, because he was sick of talking about his feelings, and he began showing signs of depression: sleeping over eighteen hours a day and purposely missing his last two physical therapy appointments. (DS9: "It's Only a Paper Moon") After ten days of incarceration in 2375, Tom Paris pleaded with The Doctor that he was "going crazy" and requested that The Doctor take him down to sickbay for a full psychiatric evaluation, followed by three or four days of observation. (VOY: "Thirty Days") In 2377, Deanna Troi coerced Leosa into revealing who she worked for by suggesting that she herself would order the dabo girl to be held for extended psychiatric observation for the foreseeable future. (VOY: "Inside Man") In dialogue that was written into the script of "Where No Man Has Gone Before" but was not included in that episode's final edit, Gary Mitchell – while confined to sickbay and experiencing aftereffects of a disastrous encounter with the galactic barrier – laments that conventional psychiatry was not sufficiently accurate to determine his prognosis. In the script, he remarks to Dr. Mark Piper, "Too bad psychiatry isn't as exact a science, eh, Doctor? Be nice to have a dial that showed the level of a patient's sanity."
  • Psychiatry is a science created to preserve the order inside the Matrix. The "real" world depends on the corrections and enforcement procedures of psychiatry. Without the guiding hand of psychiatry we would all wake up and see the world as it really is: Teletubby Land. This is scary to persons beyond the age of 5, but a delight to toddlers. Psychiatrists are the Matrix agents who not only alienate us from our Teletubby origins, but act efficiently to ensure that all references to Teletubby Land and its denizens are kept out of the discussion, so that the Matrix eventually fills your consciousness.

  • ... am curious about a kind of ecology of language / symbolizing (primatologically-informed) approach from a psychotherapeutic / psychiatric perspective (for example, what the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School would teach its MDs) to family dynamics, individual therapy and clinical practice at World University and School - and - as new approaches in these fields. WUaS is curious to extend the medical discipline of psychiatry (including knowledge/narratives of the mind/brain/bodymind, pharmaceuticals, therapeutic approaches, etc.) to include knowledge based on evolutionary biology (especially human, and all species) as well as, especially, primatological research (e.g. 376 species of higher primates, most without language). New, wiki subject coming to WUaS (and, in its knowledge orientation to helping people with mental illness, informed by nontheistic Friendliness?). I think there's a dearth of focus in psychiatry from these knowledge-spheres, but please add resources to further this conversation. In what ways could WUaS contribute a bliss focus (how to elicit this neurophysiology?) to the medical discipline of psychiatry, as well? By 'non-theistically Friendly,' I tend to mean biological and sociocultural, with a touch of serendipity and synchronicity, and emerging out of Silent Meeting (& Quaker discourse) as a kind of de facto group relaxation response with a specific history, for us as human primates, - ideas relatively underexplored (by us as) nontheistic Friends. 'Non-theism' as biology and culture might bring us somehow into conversation with, for example, those peoples in Herzog's recent film 'Cave of Forgotten Dreams' who lived and made cave art 30,000-40,000 years ago in what is now the south of France. * WUaS would like its eventual Psychiatry Department in its online Medical School at WUaS to be 'Concepts of Determinism' by John Money-centric: . * I have a friend who feels scared in certain social settings and does specific things in these settings because of this fear. So, after a lengthy set of emails about this, and an invitation to meet in a social setting, I emailed him about the value of doing the "safety dance": "Yay! See you there! Wouldn't feel safe without it :) - the safety dance.... and this too usually passes .... but the overactive brain safety program has a utility ... probably helpful to dance toward/with backs to wall ... until it's no longer helpful :) So, I next emailed him to ask further "How are you doing with your "fear in social spaces" issues these days?" And as I think about all of this, I'm curious too "Curious too how culture informs "such fear" questions ... would / do people have similar experiences in Singapore, Mauritius, Indonesia and India, as they might in Japan, as they might in America, and as they might Scotland, Spain or a western European country/culture ... ?, I asked him. Then I emailed a person who has training in related issues, and who is also a confidant: Hi, I'm concerned about a friend's mental health a bit - he's written about his "fear issues" in certain public situations and his issues sound possibly paranoid or agoraphobic. So I looked up "strategies for managing paranoia andy weil" partly because I'd like for WUaS to explore offering online psychiatric approaches to this eventually through World University and School's online teaching hospital - and in countries' main languages, and especially addressing intercultural questions online (since my friend is from Europe, has lived in Britain, has a Welsh father, and now has lived in the US for many years, and is married to a Korean women, for example). This is what I found online for this search in Google ... I appreciate the realistic approaches Dr. Weil offers including especially the integrative approaches explicitly mentioned - including seeing a psychiatrist for integrative approaches at the close of his schizophrenia article, and re - - but think there is much potential to study this inter-culturally online in new ways, rigorously and scientifically. Glad Andy Weil MD is not only an excellent communicator and MD but also a child of the '60s himself, and knowledgeable about communicating with alternative types ... and thus with countercultural ideation, I'll call this.

  • Psychiatry (from the Greek for "medical treatment of the mind") is the medical specialty that deals with mental illness particularly behavioral disorders, personality disorders, cognitive disorders and perceptual disorders. Psychiatrists use a mixture of therapy and pharmaceuticals to treat patients. A specialist in the field is a psychiatrist. Dr. Nolan was House's psychiatrist in Season 6. Temporary fellow Dr. Kelly Benedict was also a specialist in psychiatry and had just finished her residency. The term was coined in the early 19th century, although medical treatment of the mentally ill goes back to ancient times. Psychiatrists generally start an examination with a full examination of a patient's mental status, as well as taking a case history. The patient may then be given a series of physical tests and/or psychological tests. Mental illnesses are particularly difficult to diagnose as few have any definitive diagnostic criteria. As such, psychiatrists will obtain a diagnosis by comparing the patient's symptoms to such reference works as the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) or the ICD (International Classification of Diseases). In ancient times, mental illness was often seen to be the result of supernatural forces. However, by the 8th century C.E., specialized hospitals for persons with mental disorders were developed in the Arabic world and spread to Europe by the 13th century. But the 10th century, the study of such diseases started to be systematized by Arab physicians. By the 11th century, the importance of recognizing anxiety as part of mental illness by measuring a patient's pulse was noted. However, even up to the early 19th century, although more hospitals were developed to deal with such patients, treatment was often limited to palliative care. Although the 19th century saw the start of applying the scientific method and modern medicine to mental health, for the next 150 years hospitals were essentially engaged in the stockpiling of the mentally ill as the populations of mental hospitals exploded from holding hundreds of people to hundreds of thousands. Although new theories were developed in the 19th century, there was very little systematic exploration or shared knowledge. It was not until the early 20th century that psychiatry as we know it really started to be developed. Although asylums were still overflowing, new approaches such as psychotherapy and psychopharmacology started to be developed. The study of mental illness also became much more systematized and a common set of terms and diagnoses culminated in the first DSM. By the mid-20th century, new approaches started to gain ground as some mental illnesses started to become treatable, particularly with new drugs like lithium. In addition, they asylum system was broken apart starting in the 1970s as patients became deinstitutionalized and started to be treated in the community or by general hospitals. Modern psychiatry draws from a large range of pharmaceuticals that can treat all but the most serious disorders, although side effects are often a problem. There are several sub-specialties of psychiatry: * Addiction psychiatry * Biological psychiatry, looking at the biological processes that result in mental illness * Child and adolescent psychiatry * Community psychiatry, dealing with mental illness as a public health problem * Cross-cultural psychiatry, dealing with issues that involve a particular culture * Emergency psychiatry * Forensic psychiatry, such as determining whether a person is fit to participate in a trial * Geriatric psychiatry * Liaison psychiatry, dealing with issues that arise between psychiatry and other medical specialties * Military psychiatry, dealing with disorders that often arise in military service, such as PTSD * Neuropsychiatry, dealing with issues of the nervous system that can result in mental illness * Social psychiatry, dealing with issues of interpersonal and cultural context that arise with mental illness

The effects of these drugs are often a trick (psychosomatic) where the patient believes they are getting better just because they are being told so by their doctor. In the future there is a hypothesis that psychiatric drugs might get better and actually work. This includes actually creating sustained emotional highs and ridding people of the emotions of shyness and anxiety. However there tends to be a conspiracy also of the need for human beings to suffer and not be liberated or freed. This hypothesis is stated in popular film The Matrix, where Agent Smith states that human beings marked trait is their ability and need to suffer. Agent Smith proposes that a world without suffering is incomprehensible to the human brain because of its so-called 'primitive' structure. The original Matrix, (which is explained as a virtual prison for the human mind created by robots to keep humans enslaved), pain was originally eliminated and robots created a utopian dream for humans to live in. However, the robots discovered that humans kept waking up from this perfect dream and could not recognise a painless world as reality for a long period of time. This is supposedly because of the human hard-wiring towards sentience, pain and suffering. Therefore The Matrix was altered to appear like a late-modern late-20th century society, with all its banality, repetition, futility and suffering.
