Abstract

THERE is today widespread recognition among physicians and lay people alike that psychiatry is influencing modern medicine. Acceptance of many of the tenets of this comparatively new discipline has come slowly and unsystematically, often unconsciously and even unwillingly. There are still many blindspots in the recognition of the value of medical psychology. In contrast, there is at times an uncritical regard which amounts to evangelistic zeal in the new convert. The pediatrician, like his colleagues in other fields, not only is increasingly receptive to these changes in medicine but is desirous of benefiting from them; in terms of skill, knowledge and technical ability in medical psychology he usually finds himself wanting. Quite naturally he turns to others for help—first, for further self appraisal of his needs and second, for instruction in supplying these essentials. Experimentation in applying the principles of medical psychology to modern pediatric practice and to the teaching
