Abstract

• Functional and organic factors are correlated in physiology, and it is equally important that these areas be related in therapeutic activities. The new tranquilizing drugs are important, but pills alone will not solve psychiatric problems. The longitudinal pattern in psychiatric therapy means relating the referring physician (usually the family doctor) to the therapy of his patient both during and after psychiatric medicine.
