Congress of Psychotherapy  Immediately following and supplementary to the Weisbaden Congress of Internal Medicine, the transactions of which were confined this year to the vegetative organs, the Congress of Psychotherapy was held, April 20-22. As the congress now includes all psychotherapeutic schools, its name has been extended to read: Allgemeiner ärztlicher Kongress für Psychotherapie.
