Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Frederick L. Meisel

Ritvo views severe anxiety and symptom formation from the standpoint of impairment of the ego, especially in regard to judgment, reality testing, cognition, and defensive splitting. He describes a group of patients who were traumatized in the first two years of life and who were adversely affected by disturbances in the parent-child relationship, frequent somatic illnesses, and repeated, prolonged separations. Such patients are characterized by polymorphous-perverse sexual development. Two cases illustrate the thesis, giving special emphasis to activity as a coping mechanism which can be used by the child to reduce the noxious effects of an early childhood in which anxiety is unending.
