Henri Baruk (August 15, 1897 in Saint-Avé, Morbihan – June 14, 1999 in Saint-Maurice, Val-de-Marne) was a French neuropsychiatrist of Jewish descent,[1] an apostle of Moral treatment, whose studies have been used to advance concepts such as Marxism and other liberal movements of the 1960s.


Baruk spent his childhood among patients at the Lesvellec's Asylum where his father, Jacques Baruk, was the chief doctor. Baruk served in World War I and was awarded the Croix de guerre.
