Psychiatric Clinics for Children. With Special Reference to State Programs: By Helen Leland Witmer. New York: The Commonwealth Fund, 1940. 437 pp.

Review by:
William H. Dunn

This book deals particularly with the psychiatric service available for children in nonmetropolitan areas, most of which is conducted under state financed programs. Dr. Witmer has undertaken to review and analyze the data collected by field workers of the National Committee for Mental Hygiene. But, in view of the advances in psychiatric and case work with children, and in view of the growing interest in this field, she presents much more than the Survey which makes up the second part of her book. The first part gives an orientation in the theory and history of clinical child psychiatry, with attention to 'the cultural pre-requisites of a successful mental hygiene program'. The concluding portion of the book consists of a discussion of Principles for Future Programs. This arrangement of the material adds much to the appeal of the book in that it permits readers of varying interest to select material without losing the continuity.
