THE INSTITUTE FOR PSYCHOANALYSIS OF CHICAGO has recently published its third annual review. The Institute's work during 1934–1935 was largely a continuation of its research on vector analysis of psychological tendencies (differentiated into the three categories of incorporation, elimination and retention); the influence of psychogenic factors upon gastro-intestinal disturbances; quantitative dream studies; psychological factors in essential hypertension; psychic influences on respiration; asthma, skin and allergy. The Institute also reports extensive work in the education of physicians, psychiatrists, psychiatric social workers, and teachers, as well as progress in the training of analysts; and announces a fellowship grant from the Rockefeller Foundation which will finance approximately seven fellowships to be given to younger psychiatrists now engaged in research or teaching in the field of psychiatry. In its educational program the Institute has also taken steps toward broadening the sociological and cultural applications of psychoanalysis by inaugurating courses in Freud's Theory of Wit and The Application of Psychoanalysis to Literature given by Drs. Franz Alexander and Helen Vincent McLean respectively. At the same time, the school has limited the number of popular lectures because much of the material in psychoanalysis did not lend itself easily to popular interpretation.
