請問為什麼美國心理醫師稱為shrink?

請問為什麼美國的心理醫生稱為shrink呢?

我查了一下資料,有人說因為會花很多錢,所以荷包"縮水"

也有人說因為心理醫師總是給人縮頭縮腦的感覺

我想知道真正shrink對於心理醫師的由來

非常謝謝~

    Originally, 'shrink' referred primarily to psychiatrists, but over the last two decades it can be used with respect to just about any professional who does counselling or psychotherapy. 'Shrink' probably came from 'head shrink' and 'headshrinker', indicating that it most likely originated as a disparaging reference comparing the process of psychotherapy to primitive tribal practices of shrinking the heads of enemies.

    Where psychiatrists got the name "shrinks"?Calling a psychiatrist a shrink came about from a comparison between psychiatrists and headshrinkers - a term give to tribal members from way back in the day who shrunk the heads of their enemies after they killed them. So, I guess you could say it is a derogatory term to use when referencing psychiatrists - implying that they "screw with your head". The term is noted by some to date back to the 1960's, while others say the term originated in the 1950's.

    大致上shrink是從原始部落族群演變而來,當他們殺了他們的敵人之後,會拿他們的頭,然後使他們的頭變小(應該是用武器攻擊),用shrink來做心理醫生是貶低的意思,因為就像是心理醫生拿東西鑽進你的頭腦裡,這就是shrink由來。
