Medical Practice and Psychiatry: The Impact of Changing Demands: Report No. 58. New York: Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry, 1964. 42 pp.

Review by:
Lawrence J. Roose

This report of the Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry ('GAP') proceeds from the unassailable fact that the physician should treat the whole patient, if we assume the goal is good medical care. That this goal is self-evident in no way implies that the physician does his best to attain it. The greatest obstacle to this goal involves those patients with varying forms and degrees of psychological disturbance, with or without organic illness. The obstacle is not the patient but the inadequacy of his treatment by the psychiatrist and nonpsychiatrist.

The report succinctly points out many problems of attitude and technique of psychiatrist and nonpsychiatrist that work to the detriment of the patient's health.
