The traumatic neuroses of war [electronic resource].

By: Kardiner, Abram.
Publisher: Washington, DC : National Research Council, 1941Description: p. ; cm.Subject(s): Pyschic trauma | Psychotherapy | Traumatic neuroses | War neuroses | Combat disorders | PsychotherapyAdditional physical formats: No titleOnline resources: Fulltext available via EBSCOhost - Shibboleth login required Also issued in print.Summary: This book purports to be a guide to the study, treatment and postwar care of those neurotic disturbances which are incidental to war. The greatest stress in this work falls on the discussion of those principles of psychopathology necessary to make these neuroses intelligible and to furnish a rational basis for therapy. This was regarded as the prime objective, for without this knowledge no intelligent program for treatment, prophylaxis, and postwar care can be formulated. In addition, an attempt is made to discuss the forensic aspects of the traumatic neuroses, since so many of them become government charges for a long postwar period. Treatment is discussed at length only in connection with several chronic cases which terminated successfully. This is in no way to be construed as indicating that therapy in these chronic cases is universally successful. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
