Excerpt from The Psychology of Functional Neuroses It is psychologically as well as socially and medically desirable that representative cases of the functional neuroses be accorded the more thorough individual and group attention already given to the various other neuropsychiatric conditions. From this point of view it is fortunate that during the recent war a special hospital was designated where soldiers with persistent psychoneurotic symptoms were assembled for further observation and diagsis, care and treatment. U. S. A. General Hospital No. 30, at Plattsburg Barracks, N. Y., was so designated. Along with the other hospital services, a psychological service was established, of which the writer was the director. Along with the routine duties of the service, which was also charged with the conduct of occupational therapy, a group of about 1,200 consecutive cases was given special attention. Through the courtesy of the medical staff and the cordial cooperation of the various hospital services, complete data and records concerning all cases were accessible.
