This book has been prepared primarily as a textbook based on a theoretical-experimental approach. It is intended for use as a first year course in psychiatry. The author has presented only those theoretical constructs that have the widest acceptance and has endeavored to provide the experimental and clinical evidence from which they are derived. An attempt has been made to integrate the concepts of the behaviorist, Gestalt, and Freudian schools with the stated purpose of providing an integrated orientation for the student without the bias of any particular school.

The comprehensive coverage of the text makes it of value as a source background for psychiatrists, internists, sociologists, and other persons concerned with the problems of human behavior.
