Title Treatment of the neuroses / by Ernest Jones
Published New York : W. Wood & Co., 1920


Description 1 online resource (viii, 233 pages)
Summary "It being evident that the treatment of the neuroses is now engaging the interest of the medical profession to an extent never before approached, this has seemed an appropriate moment to publish a review of the various methods of treatment at our disposal, and, as the writer is in the peculiar position--at all events in this country--of having had a considerable experience with all the main methods, he has regarded it as a duty to undertake this task. The attempt has been made to lay stress on the positive aspects of each method, i.e. on the contribution they may have made to our knowledge or capacity to help, rather than on the negative ones, though a critical summary has been added in each case. Further, as many of the principles of treatment would have been unintelligible without reference to the theory on which they are based, it has been necessary to say something on the subject of pathology, and even, here and there, on that of symptomatology, the space devoted to these matters, however, having been reduced to a minimum. To avoid needless repetition the principles of psychopathology and of mental therapeutics have been dealt with at some length under one heading, the appropriate one of hysteria, so that the chapters on the other neuroses are correspondingly short"--Preface.
