Child Psychotherapy: By S. R. Slavson. New York: Columbia University Press, 1952. 332 pp.

Review by:
Charles A. Mangham

The author's discussion of development and pathogenesis is too elementary for anyone sufficiently trained to undertake psychotherapy of children, and too sketchy and inaccurate for those who are less sophisticated. He uses many classifications which may be valuable in teaching but oversimplify. The introduction of new terms makes the reading difficult. There are few references except to the author's own work and there is poor documentation of ideas which are not his own. The last part of the book dealing with his personal experiences with patients and punctuated with clinical case material is interesting and worth while though replete with controversial statements.
