A new study says the use of torturing people in mental health settings is “safe” because the method is a safe and effective way to control patients.
The study was published Monday in the journal Psychological Science.
The authors of the study said they wanted to know how often and with whom people were tortured in the mental health setting and what type of torture it was.
The researchers found that more than a third of the torture sessions involved physical violence, including choking and punching.
The most common type of physical punishment was physical restraint, the authors wrote.
In one of the most disturbing scenes, the researchers saw a person being restrained in a chair for more than 20 minutes.
The person was restrained for more that 30 minutes and was often given a glass of water or ice, according to the study.
The study authors said they believe the torture of this patient was “an indicator of their mental health state and may have led to mental health issues.”
Another torture was when a person was subjected to a prolonged mental and physical torture that lasted for more then five hours.
The researchers said it was “highly unlikely” that these types of tortures were medically necessary and could cause mental health problems.
The practice of torturers is not new, the study authors wrote, citing the history of the Spanish Inquisition and the Nazi treatment of Jewish prisoners of war.
They also said they do not know whether torture was necessary in some cases, as it was common in mental hospitals during the Second World War.
