Development of the world psychiatric science was not a continuous process. In psychiatry, as in any other sphere of human activity, they had their revolution periods of stagnation and breakthroughs. In different periods of one or the other country becomes the center of psychiatric research, but at the same time, each country and each school contributes to its development.
With the formation of the State of Israel here headed the citizens of many countries, which brought diverse cultures, different knowledge and approaches, including in medicine. Doctors who came to Israel were from different countries and belonged to different schools. A large number of doctors - people from Germany, Austria, Hungary and Romania - have brought the German classical school of psychiatry and psychotherapy.

We can say that even in terms of drug treatment there are differences, for example, between the American and European psychiatry. In Israel, there is this division, and we use both European and American drugs.
