Summary
"For the past twenty years, the author has been associated with medical students and patients. During that period, he has met numerous individuals who needed help which medicine and surgery were unable to provide. He has also seen many of these same individuals completely relieved or greatly benefited through the treatment of capable psychiatrists. Therefore, he is convinced that the educated public should be offered some general information concerning the value and application of practical psychology. This discussion is not presented with a desire to educate the psychologist, the psychiatrist, or the physiologist. It is modestly presented with a knowledge that some of the thoughts contained have helped individuals to orient themselves and, also, aided others to seek the services of some properly qualified psychiatrist. In a brief discussion of this character, it is impossible, at present, to use a terminology that would prove satisfactory to all the various schools of psychology; yet it is wholly possible to convey the ideas to the general reader in his vehicle of expression. An earnest attempt will be made to use a terminology which most nearly conforms to the concepts of the psychiatrist, the psychologist, the physiologist, and the general reader"--Preface.
