Abstract

A simple accessory method is described for the desensitization of startle reaction and, to some degree, of anxiety, in cases of combat fatigue, by the use of moving pictures of battle scenes.Each showing takes only about 15 minutes and on the average 12 showings have produced marked improvement in all but one of 14 cases.The simplicity of the method; its relative speed and the favorable results achieved without taxing the physician's time, indicate a more extensive trial of this supplementary procedure.
