Sinai Hospital, New York, has written this book to help the resident psychiatrist or beginning psychiatrist in his approach to the mental patient in the hospital setting with accent on the team approach and importance of the "therapeutic community." The book fulfills its purpose admirably and contains a wealth of fairly detailed information which will serve to guide the psychiatrist in innumerable situations. The first of its five sections, "The Treatment Program," deals in a general way with various forms of therapy that are used in a hospital. Included are individual psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, somatotherapy, recreational therapy, occupational and vocational therapy, food as therapy, and special ward procedures. The second section deals with the treatment team and takes up in quite some detail the role and training of the social worker, psychologist, attendant, nurse, chaplain, and volunteer worker.
