This volume includes a series of postgraduate lectures at the Tavistock Clinic. It does not provide any originality but instead attempts to reflect the author's opinions and views of various psychoanalytic concepts. The author has borrowed freely from Freud, Jung and Adler. Presenting a limited number of cases, he discusses the anxiety states, neurasthenia, obsessional states, hysteria and various sexual abnormalities, concluding with drug addiction. The author inclines toward the idea that the future of psychiatry will be determined by the trend toward psychosomatic considerations.
