Review by:
Alva Gwin

This concise, factual description of functional emotional disturbances may serve as a text for the physician in general practice, the pediatrician, or medical student. Hysteria, Anxiety Neurosis, Compulsion Neurosis, and the Neurotic Character are discussed without attempts to coin new words. Factors in their development are illustrated by brief case histories. Suggestions as to the best type of treatment for each condition are made. In case psychoanalysis is decided upon, the authors emphasize the necessity of a well organized plan, which includes the understanding coöperation of those persons in closest contact with the patient.

The goal to be attained is well described by the following quotation: “When from personal, emotional reëducation, the patient can invest his feelings in reality affairs, without anxiety, and with no harm to others, he is no longer the victim of neurosis.”
