Dollenmayer, David B
The roots of psychology as we know it began in the end of the 19th century. At the time Germany was one of the centers of the psychological community but the coming of the Weimar Republic brought with it the radicalization of many of these fields. When the Nazis took power, psychology became a tool for the new government and was twisted to be used as a means to spread their power and ideology. Even so, many regulations and laws were set into effect under the Nazi government, which helped transform psychology into a legitimate profession. Johannes Heinrich Schultz, a psychologist known for his development of Autogenic training for use in psychological treatments, is used as a case study to examine the effects of the Third Reich on Psychology.
