Psychodynamics of Abnormal Behavior: By J. F. Brown, Ph.D. New York and London: McGraw-Hill Book Company, 1940. 484 pp.

Review by:

He recognizes that the elaboration of a systematic dynamic approach in psychology was made possible by Freud, 'the individual, more than any other, responsible for this … position'. Most of the findings, theories and methods of psychoanalysis are accepted by the author. As a matter of fact, he bases his main teachings on psychoanalysis.
