In "Obesity and Psychoanalysis" by Colleen Rand, Ph.D., and Albert J. Stunkard, M.D., in the May 1978 issue, the last sentence of the precis is incorrect. The decrease in the percentage of obese patients suffering from body image disparagement was from 40% to 14%. Also, in the section Body Image Disparagement, the second sentence of the second paragraph should read, "Twenty-nine obese patients reported severe and 35 mild body image disparagement. . . ."The staff regrets these errors.
