D. B.

The points in this article are summed up in the author's recapitulation.

1. Traumatic neurosis is not primarily dependent upon litigation.

2. All hysterias are dependent to a great extent upon traumata, psychical rather than physical. The mental mechanism in litigious cases probably parallels the non-litigious ones.

3. The constitutional make-up of the patient, more specifically his unconscious mental equipment, is the most important factor determining the development of hysteria.

4. All hysterics are unconsciously attempting to achieve something through their illness and until that aim is brought clearly into consciousness or some substitute for it is provided them there is little hope for permanent cure.
