|X||DAPH as of 8.99 contains over
100 major scholarly articles and 6 textbooks which
cover all areas and ages of history. This fact alone can
be pretty overwhelming to the newcomer! If you have an
interest in a certain period, reading articles about it
in light of PH may be just the thing. But if you're still
asking the question:
Where should I
does one do Psychohistory?
I need to mention, at this time, Psychohistory is ONLY pro- child and pro- active clinical projects. It does NOT favor or support any political party, system of government, religion or agenda. Though we do study the 'Why' of each of them.
are the areas of Psychohistorical study?
Again, as individual motivations are founded in prenatal, perinatal and early childhood development, so we find these experiences to be the basis of ALL history; so the most important issue is how well the primary caregivers treated the children in each period of history.
The one Psychohistorical tool that can not be gained through even the most diligent historical research is empathic knowledge of oneself. This one 'tool' may surpass all others in necessity of what it takes to 'do' Psychohistory. A firm background in therapeutic principles is required. For as it is well known by every clinician - "you can only deal with what you yourself have processed." So it goes for 'putting the world on the couch' - or doing Psychohistory.
can I talk to other Psychohistorians?
This web site will be offered for university, public library and home use in a fully searchable, interactive, multi-platform CD-ROM. [Projected cost $5 to cover production and mailing.] Contact DAPH to be placed on our mailing list to receive more information about this and other Psychohistorical and child care projects.
