Dianetics

A system of mental health therapeutics devised in the 1940s by writer L. Ron Hubbard. Announced in 1950, for several years dianetics survived as an independent practice. However, it was soon taken up into the much broader program of the Church of Scientology, founded in 1954, which embodies the more comprehensive spiritual philosophy developed by Hubbard.
