Text: Page 212

Hollingshead and Redlich argued there was a distinct relationship between social class and mental illness; the higher classes were treated in private institutions with analytic psychotherapy while the lower classes were treated in public institutions with more directive and organic therapies, with shock treatments, lobotomies, and high dosages of psychiatric medication. They concluded the lower the class, the more brutal the treatments.
