Chapters, by various authors, from Freedman and Kaplan's (editors) Comprehensive Textbook of Psychiatry, assembled to give, in Volume I, a summary of psychiatric diagnostic classification (DSM-II/APA), a short account of child development, a longer account of inner emotional difficulties, and a survey of testing and examination methods, and in Volume II, a description of the major problems—neurosis, psychosis, addiction, mental retardation—and their treatment.

There are other accounts of emotional and mental development that are fuller and clearer (such as Lidz's The Person)
