Abstract:

"In 1935, in response to requests from physicians and students for an orientation manual of psychobiology and psychiatry, the author prepared a mimeographed compend dealing with these subjects for the use of the medical students and resident and visiting staff members of the University of Colorado School of Medicine and Hospitals. In response to the encouragement given the author by his clinical confreres and students, he has attempted in this work to organize into compendium form the material of psychobiology and psychiatry in terms that have seemed most effective in orienting the student and physician in the study and management of the disorders of personality functioning as they occur in clinical medicine and psychiatry. This handbook is not offered as a substitute for the more advanced and formal textbooks on personality functioning and the abnormalities thereof. It is presented specifically as an aid to the scientific marshaling of facts and the economic application of effort in the study, understanding, and treatment of the psychopathological reactions until such a time as the student or physician has gained experience and individual clinical technique sufficient to make such an epitome unnecessary. It is hoped that the A B C's of psychobiology, of the psychiatric examination procedures for the adult and the child, of the more common psychopathological reaction patterns, and of the general principles of psychotherapy, as given, will be of assistance as a guide that can be used conveniently"--Introduction.
