ABSTRACT

First published in 1955 and reprinted many times, this book is now revised as an expanded new second edition. Its new chapters include clear expositions of how to try to identify with the alcoholic patient, the psychosomatic patient, the delirious patient, the surgery patient, and persons needing further understanding of sexual living. The book has two parts, one for the adult and one for the child.

The first edition proved highly practical to all practicing physicians, dentists, and nurses, as well as medical college and nursing school students. The present edition promises to be of even greater helpfulness for everyone working in the fields of education and health. Dr. Bird's style of writing is kind, considerate, and courageously open-minded. It reflects his continuing profit from ongoing experience with adult and child patients and with medical students, faculty colleagues, and co-workers in related professional fields such as law, religion, and education.
