Inbar publication picDr. Inbar Graiver, HCMH research fellow, published a new article in History of Psychology, titled “A Historical Perspective on Mental Health: Proposal for a Dialogue between History and Psychology”.

The article aims to promote a dialogue between history and psychology by outlining a direction for future research at the intersection of these disciplines. In particular, it seeks to demonstrate the potential contributions of history to psychology by employing the category of mental health in a historical context. The analysis focuses on notions of psychological health that were developed in late antiquity, especially the equation between “health of the soul” and dispassion (apatheia) within the Christian monastic movement.
