"Rational" hospital psychiatry

Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 11 (2):135-141 (1986)
Abstract
When, in 1974, the authors chose to describe their approach to hospital psychiatry as "rational", they were departing from the prevailing psychiatric belief that treatment should be based on theories of behavior. Instead, the authors advocated that rational treatments should be based on empirical findings and on pragmatic considerations, a view which a decade later has found its way into mainstream American psychiatry.
