The discovery of magnetic sleep in the late 18th century, by Franz Anton Mesmer, revealed mental activity that was not available to the conscious mind but could affect conscious thought and action. Focusing on the late 18th to early 20th centuries, this book charts the history of psychological healing and the ideas surrounding it, such as animal magnetism, hypnotism and alternate consciousness; and how it relates to modern psychotherapy. Adam Crabtree is a psychotherapist, and faculty member at the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy, Toronto.
