Abstract:

"In the progressive development of the treatment and care of mental patients, more and more persons are brought into the mental hospitals, often primarily for experience and training but actually assisting in treatment. Included among these are medical students acting as clinical assistants or junior interns during the summer months, clergymen serving as so-called theological interns, psychologists, affiliate nurses, social workers, and occupational therapists. From time to time, new books on mental illness and mental hospitals make their appearance. Some of these are intended for popular interest, and not a few appear to be sensational in their approach, resulting in a distorted impression of conditions and a distrust of institutions, their facilities, and personnel. Other treatises, many of them highly technical and comprehensive, are for medical students and graduates and for psychiatric specialists. Some compendiums for nurses are not entirely satisfactory because they refer only briefly to the special problems presented by mental patients. There are a few larger textbooks devoted to the nursing of mental patients. In the present book, the authors have planned an approach to a larger group, including--in addition to those concerned with treatment--types of institutional personnel whose training has heretofore been neglected. Not only attendants and nurses, but many other workers such as those mentioned above, are more constantly with the patients than are the physicians, and are in strategic positions to affect the patients' welfare either, favorably or otherwise, hence the need for a training program. The authors of this book have evidently appreciated the requirements of the situation. Drawing on the wealth of their experience, they have evolved an understandable discussion of mental patients, their hospitalization, and the broader aspects of treatment and prevention of mental disorders. The earlier chapters, while of special importance to the untrained attendant and affiliated nurse, may be read with profit by all others who are responsible for the care and treatment of mental patients"--Introduction.
