Maladjusted Ghosts

Psychotherapy was big in the Postwar ear (remember Lucy's alternative to the lemonade stand?). It was, after all, a period where nearly everyone was trying return to normal despite the fact that much of the population had no adult memories of anything but war and economic upheaval. Those who couldn't afford therapy gobbled up books and magazine articles and talked about complexes and phobias and being maladjusted.

Even ghosts.
