An unusual opportunity presented itself to evaluate the results of therapy in a large group of patients with various stress disorders in one of the medical clinics of the New York Hospital. In a group of 1,154 patients, two different methods of appraisal were used in determining the effectiveness of the treatment—that is, the results of therapy were compared with published series in the literature, and small groups of special disease entities were compared with similar matched groups treated by physicians in other departments of the hospital, using a different method of therapy.
