Abstract

The treatment of traumatic neuroses of war should be conceived as a total therapy designed to affect, regulate or modulate all aspects of the psycho-biological organism and its environmental relationships and impacts. Any and every individual, physician, nurse, social worker and others should clearly understand that these patients are suffering from a most complex form of insecurity which has its medical, psychological and social symptomalologies.

These patients are best treated in an environment which combines the atmosphere of a home, a personally supervised work-recreation program, prompt personal attention to everything that promotes good mental and physical health and a genuine sensible personal interest in each patient by every person in contact with them regularly during their stay in the convalescent center.
