An Inquiry Into Prognosis in the Neuroses: By T. A. Ross. Cambridge: University Press, 1936. 192 pp.

Review by:
Martin W. Peck

This book is in the main a study of the long range results of psychotherapeutic treatment of the neuroses at the Cassel Hospital for Functional Nervous Disorders. This institution, called Swaylands, was founded in 1919, to furnish systematic treatment for the psychoneuroses on the basis that these disabilities had received too little organized attention and management from the medical profession. The interest of the founder, Sir Ernest Cassel, was aroused by the striking manifestations of neuroses among the soldiers in the world war.

Dr. Ross was, until a few years ago, the medical director and moving spirit of the institution. Swaylands furnishes rather sumptuous physical accommodations and care for some sixty patients, whose residence varies from two to six months.
