Psychiatry on the College Campus: By H. G. Whittington. (New York: Int. Univ. Press, 1964. Pp. vii + 328. $7.50.)

Review by:
E. Stengel

The demand for psychiatric help is greater among college and university students than among the corresponding age groups of the general population. There is, however, no proof that psychiatric morbidity among students is higher than among their coevals otherwise employed. The need for psychiatric clinics within the student health service is now generally recognized. Dr Whittington, who was a Fellow of the Menninger School of Psychiatry in Topeka, was for four years in charge of the mental health service of the University of Kansas. Out of that experience he has written an excellent clinical handbook of psychiatric practice in this type of population. In the first part of the book the author describes the university subculture, reports his observations on a deviant student group and discusses the specific difficulties the psychiatrist encounters in the university setting. The chief method of treatment employed was psycho-analytically orientated brief psychotherapy.
