A follow-up study of war neuroses by Norman Q Brill( Book )

1 edition published in 1956 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is the result of cooperative efforts between governmental agencies and also represents a partnership of government and civilian medicine. It would be difficult to overemphasize the pertinency of the subject matter to our national welfare. The experiences of two world wars and their aftermaths demand imaginative and exhaustive investigations of causative, therapeutic and rehabilitative factors in psychiatric illnesses. The pension and compensation functions of the Veterans Administration give factual and startling evidence of these needs. Our defense efforts including the present and future requirements of the armed services, as well as the ever-present spectre of total mobilization in an emergency, all underline the necessity for continued evaluation of the manpower resources of the nation. This includes a study of psychiatric morbidity and how it can be more effectively combated, as well as treated, together with an analysis of the optimum use of the disabled, particularly those with marginal disabilities. This inquiry into the "war neuroses" offers the opportunity for an examination of our present knowledge of the psychoneuroses, particularly as applied to the military setting. It provides a well-documented record of the results of selection, preventive efforts and treatment and rehabilitative procedures. It allows a thoughtful evaluation of screening criteria, assignment methods and treatment programs. It permits conclusions to be drawn with profit to civilian psychiatry, the military and those charged with the after-care of the veteran. That this difficult and laborious research effort could be brought to fruition constitutes a recognition of the dedication and resourcefulness of the authors and those who assisted them.

The myth of the birth of the hero : a psychological interpretation of mythology by Otto Rank( Book )

1 edition published in 1952 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The prominent civilized nations, such as the Babylonians, Egyptians, Hebrews, and Hindoos, the inhabitants of Iran and of Persia, the Greeks and the Romans as well as the Teutons and others, all began at an early stage to glorify their heroes, mythical princes and kings, founders of religions, dynasties, empires or cities, in brief their national heroes, in a number of poetic tales and legends. The history of the birth and of the early life of these personalities came to be especially invested with fantastic features, which in different nations even though widely separated by space and entirely independent of each other present a baffling similarity, or in part a literal correspondence. Many investigators have long been impressed with this fact, and one of the chief problems of mythical research still consists in the elucidation of the reason for the extensive analogies in the fundamental outlines of mythical tales, which are rendered still more enigmatical by the unanimity in certain details, and their reappearance in most of the mythical groupings. In this book, we shall first take up the legendary material on which such a psychological interpretation is to be attempted for the first time on a large scale; selecting from the mass of these chiefly biographical hero myths those which are the best known, and some which are especially characteristic. These myths will be given in abbreviated form as far as relevant for this investigation, with statements concerning the provenance. Attention will be called to the most important, constantly recurrent motives by a difference in print"--Introduction

Short-term therapy in an authoritative setting by B. M Beck( Book )

1 edition published in 1946 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This manuscript was begun in late 1943 and at that time was intended primarily as a manual for military social workers. The author was then a soldier in the Medical Department and a member of the staff of the Drew Field Mental Hygiene Unit. The original manuscript was submitted to the Surgeon General's Office in Washington, D.C., where it was not approved for publication because the role of the medical officer as the psychiatrist was not sufficiently described. Dr. Lewis L. Robbins, at that time a captain in the Medical Corps and Chief of the Drew Field Mental Hygiene Unit, generously agreed to collaborate on the manuscript, on which he had already given the author inestimable help and had made many revisions. Dr. Robbins revised the manuscript along the lines indicated by the War Department and resubmitted it for approval. Approval was granted. By the time the author was notified of this, however, the war had been successfully concluded, and there was some question as to the advisability of publishing the manuscript as it then stood. Everybody concerned, however, agreed that there was material in it of considerable value to social workers and psychiatrists which should be published. The author therefore undertook a third revision, rewriting the entire work so as to retain and amplify the material of value to civilian practice. It is this final revision that now appears"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
