LONG JOURNEY

The subtitle of this book, A Verbatim Report of a Case of Severe Psychosexual Infantilism. Indicates the professional market for which it will be of especial value. For the layman, the story of a young man's psychotherapy as he talked through long sessions with his doctor may open new areas of consciousness, and show the healing of a personality. However, the interpretation is all Pedro's as he discusses his feelings about his family, his minority background, sex -- in terms of fantasy and reality, often intermingled. The appendices contain interpretations of representative dreams; content analyses and results of Rorschach and Thematic Apperception Tests; aptitude and interest test ratings. The correlation of the patient's verbalization with tests will make this particularly valuable for the professional.
