The Psychiatric Unit in a General Hospital. Its Current and Future Role: Edited by M. Ralph Kaufman, M.D. New York: International Universities Press, Inc., 1965. 482 pp.

Review by:
Samuel R. Lehrman

As Director of Psychiatry at the Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York since 1945, Kaufman has labored unceasingly for the building of a psychiatric institute staffed by psychoanalysts and psychoanalytically oriented psychiatrists. They have been encouraged to work in a general hospital setting without sacrifice to their psychoanalytic frame of reference. The Mt. Sinai Hospital Institute of Psychiatry (with its preponderantly psychoanalytic staff) was formally opened in December 1962. The present volume represents the published proceedings of the exercises held in February 1963 to dedicate the opening. Of the thirty contributors, more than half are psychoanalysts.

The book is divided into six sections. Section One describes the physical setting and its personnel (psychiatrist, case worker, nurse, psychologist, occupational therapist, and behavioral scientist).
