Background Although there is a lot known about the history and methods of torture, there has been little research done on its physical and psychological effects. However thanks to the recent advancements made in the fields of social and clinical science, scientist now have an opportunity to further advance studies on the long term effects of torture (Stuart W. Turner, Caroline Grost-Unsworth, 1995).

These interviews became the basis for research into the psychological effects of traumatic experiences. Since that time psychologists have continued to interview victims of torture and have used the information to evaluate the psychological impacts of torture.

His warnings are still valid as the world we know today is racing its way towards the immensely bleak future that Orwell predicted for us. There are many reasons as to why I believe that his warnings are still apparent today.

The way that fear and persuasion are implemented in the two works is through different literary elements. “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” was written by Jonathan Edwards during The Great Awakening, and is about how God is massive and ruthless towards humans, and how God will send you to hell without hesitation for even the slightest of sins.

The use of ECT declined until the 1980s, "when use began to increase amid growing awareness of its benefits and cost-effectiveness for treating severe depression". In 1985 the National Institute of Mental Health and National Institutes of Health convened a consensus development conference on ECT and concluded that, while ECT was the most controversial treatment in psychiatry and had significant side-effects, it had been shown to be effective for a narrow range of severe psychiatric disorders. Due to the backlash noted previously, national institutions reviewed past practices and set new standards.

In 2003, The UK ECT Review group published a systematic review and meta-analysis comparing ECT to placebo and antidepressant drugs.
