Transcript of Victorian Era Psychology

Psychology in the Early 19th Century By Ryan Becker
(and some Rob Bongo) Treatment of Women Psychology of The Victorian Era;
Insane Asylums Victorian Era Psychology Strict General Output Towards
"Different" People Many women were expected to act upon the household. Their primary duty was to complete domestic services like cook, clean, and i love ky n mii. However, many couples became separated, and because of this, domestic services of all kinds were the greatest employer of women. Queen Victoria generally had very stern punishments against those who would rebel against her word. This general mob-mentality resulted in looking down upon those who did not conform to the norm. People who were out of place were shunned or considered weird. This attitude still exists today, but on a smaller scale. Queen Victoria
(1819-1901 Many women
were extremely depressed and anxious due to the way England treated them. Because of this, many were sent to Insane Asylums, such as Sarah Gardener and Elizabeth Thaw. Hellingly Mental Asylum - Hellingly Asylum was notorious for holding women who were considered "mentally ill" or "insane" during the 19th Century, and now is not in use, but is being renovated. (See Photo) - High Ryods Asylum's structure is still in tact thanks to renovations and upkeeping, however is also no longer in use. Conclusion Of Victorian Era Psychology This attitude also resulted in depression and lack of expression for women. This brought about the unrealistic, odd conclusions of insanity in many women, and overall segregation of people who did not meet expectations. The treatment of women and the overall mob mentality of Victorian England come from the strict attitude towards rebels, and gender roles and expectations from previous eras. This came about by keeping traditional methods in tact such as men working blue collar jobs, and women staying home and taking care of the family.
